    Crystal performance is close to Go-lang. It's just very fast across the board.

    Consequently, just like Go-lang, it beats Ruby by an order of magnitude on pretty much any benchmark.

    Newcomers often assume Crystal must be sluggish like Ruby because "how could a language with such a convenient syntax be so fast", but it really is not.
