I implemented a nontrivial algorithm in Apple's Swift, and the performance was miserable. Then I started digging deeper, and noticed that something as simple as sorting an array of integers can be surprisingly slow in Swift.

Here are some benchmarks that compare Swift, pure Python, and C++. I am just sorting an array with 1 million random integers, using the "sort" function from the standard library:

— C++ -O3: 0.06 s
— C++ -O0: 0.06 s
— Python: 0.6 s
– Swift -O3: 6 s
– Swift -O0: 88 s.

Both the C++ compiler (clang++) and the Swift compiler were from Apple's Xcode 6 beta.

Seriously, what is wrong here? Of course I am a total beginner with Swift, but I do not see much room for user errors here: "let y = sort(x)", where x is a million-element array of type "Int[]".

"Using historical production data, we calculate that global nuclear power has prevented an average of 1.84 million air pollution-related deaths and 64 gigatonnes of CO2-equivalent (GtCO2-eq) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that would have resulted from fossil fuel burning. On the basis of global projection data that take into account the effects of the Fukushima accident, we find that nuclear power could additionally prevent an average of 420 000–7.04 million deaths and 80–240 GtCO2-eq emissions due to fossil fuels by midcentury, depending on which fuel it replaces."
