Not necessarily.  It doesn't matter how concise your source code is.  If
the
compiler implements virtual functions with a lot of conditional jumps,
then it
doesn't matter what you use.  Of course, I don't know how compilers
implement
virtual functions, so it may be that they are faster.  Anyone care to
comment?
