In addition to what others mentioned:

I haven't updated either of them in a while, but both use the bigtable
test approach.

For a more realistic scenario, you can look at

The Plone 3.2 with ZPT versus Plone 3.3 with Chameleon numbers
(Chameleon is the only speed relevant difference here) suggest that in
real world templates, switching to Chameleon over ZPT might give
something like a 0.5x to 2x speed increase. Given that the bigtable
benchmark suggests 10x to 20x the speed, you can make your own
conclusions what the real world performance for other templating
languages looks like.
