I don¹t 100% know. This is why I am building the performance test case at
the moment with the JVM and supersonic (and am happy to share the load
with other volunteers).

I pretty much have the basis for the Java test with an existing
multi-threaded vector processing engine.
Now previously doing these sort of tests for common use cases (involving
string processing),
_Java_ was faster. Furthermore, I became performance bound due to memory
IO @ around 7 core so further per core optimisation using C++ was a waste
of time as it could not improve performance further.
However, GC pause and other similar factors as the JVM memory footprint
exceeded 4GB became key issues. (This was using both the G1GC and Azul

Now these guys are are doing good work with optimised JVM usage.

That stated, having to go to these sort of lengths to get BigData Java
seems to 
be forcing the use of Java.

Thus, until Google published Supersonic, I thought the route of directly
producing LLVM assembler with a bit of C++ glue code was likely to produce
the best result. However, if Supersonic proves the goods, I for one would
rather a practical solution for drill sooner rather than later.

So we shall seeŠ.
