Clearly your mileage may vary, but the difference between inner loops written in 'C' or higher compared to assembler (and optimized assembler at that) is way significant if you are talking about number crunching. Typically I sin in such a fashion when I'm generating fractals and such like. Being greedy, I will use any trick I can in order to bitblit a little faster!
