Lua is 24% Faster Than UnrealScript. Nothing new, but something I found that was very interesting (and uplifting):

Lua is performing at around 1/7th the speed of C++ for n=1000 and 1/40th for n=7000. It is about 24% faster than UnrealScript.

Once again, great decision on Ansca Mobile’s part for choosing Lua as the language to interface with the Corona SDK.
