    Question What alive programming languages have better-than-C performance?

    Hello all! I have found that Fortran on numerical data has better than C performance. What are the programming languages which have better than C performance? I know about machine codes and assembly. Thak you.

    I'm only aware of Fortran in that respect. I think it's due to guarantees the language makes regarding aliasing. Maybe as LLVM improves further, Rust could benefit from such guarantees too, but that's years down the line, if ever.

    This shouldn't matter except for very narrow use cases and as you said one can target those with assembly as well.
