Recently, I am starting to design an application for analysis and design structures with Finite Element method (FEM). Yet, I write my other previous application with VB.Net. But this new application need to a fast language because of huge matrix operation in FEM. It seems that visual c++ (.Net) is faster than VB.Net but my question is whether .Net makes some overloads in my huge matrix operation and other math functions?
If that is true, can I conclude that c++ is faster and better for these case of applications?
