View Thread: is managed code faster than native?

    the C# compiler is like 5 - 10x faster than the c++ compiler. Does that prove that real world managed code runs faster than native code.

    Length of time to compile is a bad measure of the performance of the output.

    For example, the code I compile as "Debug" takes less time to compile than code compiled as "Release", yet the code compiled as "Release" runs vastly faster.
