with n-queens but much slower at mathematical functions.

Yes I can see how C could speed up a slow calc. Im just very surprised that taking into account clock differences, the language efficiency of the G2 is only about 10% of the CG50 running Micropython. My initial thought was the decimal point may have slipped to the left as mistakes can and do sometimes happen! Thanks for the explanation.
