So you cannot tell us if Blink is faster on the same CPU as you tested WebKit?

So how can we know that this cutting-edge GC will make things better?

Note: I am not saying that we shouldn't adopt better technologies that improve 
performance, even if just a little. I am simply debating your claim that the 
GC is the whole reason behind the slowness.
