"A particularly good GC will actually be faster overall than even a well coded manual memory management using application."

... but only when you are willing to throw about 4 times the memory an equivalent explicitly-managed program would use at the problem: http://www.cs.umass.edu/~emery/pubs/gcvsmalloc.pdf

This unfortunately means that performance-wise garbage collection fares particularly badly with "large" applications where the working set size approaches the available RAM.
