For a fair comparison you must build and run both with
the same compiler on the same computer.

FWIW, on a Samsung R540 under Linux the timings are
Lua 5.2: 14.5, Lua 5,3 13.7; 15.1, which corresponds
more to what one might expect.

If you want to see a dramatic performance increase,
no recent Intel CPU is going to show it, but an Android
phone might.
