I wrote a benchmark that calculates the sum of the first 10000 primes and compared Rust to TypeScript. TypeScript on NodeJS is the fastest among Rust, Scala, and Java. Even though the programs intentionally use a functional style for testing primality aiming to show the advantages of Rust's zero-cost abstraction,...

## Why is TypeScript (on NodeJS) faster than Rust in computing the sum of the primes

I wrote a benchmark that calculates the sum of the first 10000 primes and compared Rust to TypeScript. TS on NodeJS is the fastest among Rust, Scala, and Java.

## Paradox: Why is yield return faster than list here

People have proven countless times, that yield return is slower than list.Example: Is 'yield return' slower than "old school" return?

## Why is 2 * x * x faster than 2 * ( x * x ) in Python 3.x, for integers?

The following Python 3.x integer multiplication takes on average between 1.66s and 1.77s:if I replace 2 * x * x with 2 *(x * x), it takes between 2.04 and 2.25. How come?

## Why is 2 * x * x faster than 2 * ( x * x ) in Python?

The following Python program takes on average between 1.66s and 1.77s:if I replace 2 * x * x with 2 *(x * x), it takes between 2.04 and 2.25. How come?

## Why 2 * (i * i) is faster than 2 * i * i in Java?

The following Java program takes on average between 0.50s and 0.55s to run:If I replace 2 * (i * i) with 2 * i * i, it takes between 0.60 and 0.65s to run. How come?

## Why is python dict creation from list of tuples 3x slower than from kwargs

There are a couple of ways to construct a dictionary in python, for example:andWhen you benchmark these

## Why is F# so much slower than C#? (prime number benchmark)

I thought that F# was meant to be faster than C#, I made a probably bad benchmark tool and C# got 16239ms while F# did way worse at 49583ms. Could somebody explain why this is? I'm considering leaving F# and going back to C#. Is it possible to get the...
