And not only are better hardware resources helping, but in a great example of "do it right then make it fast" Lisp and Smalltalk systems get better and better at compiling to efficient code. Most Lisps now (and for a long time) go to native code, and some compilers are _very_ good, and the same holds for Smalltalk (which in addition can get a boost from JIT stuff).
