How do you compare R to SAS in terms of speed and management of large datasets?

What about Revolution R?
I've seen on their site, they claim that Revolution R is much faster than R and it's multithread...
Can you really notice the difference?. What dissadvantage does it have? I think it's based on R 2.10. but R already issued the version 2.12


What alternative to R would you use in order to merge asynchronus time series?. SAS, Stata, eViews...?
