I am sure this may be the case in some applications, but in very heavy

modern 1+ ghz processors).

I agree, but it sounded like the application in question was one that applied business rules to some business data. These usually involve a bunch of complex if-then-elses where you'll probably spend much more time reading the data and writing the results than processing.
