They actually managed to get some really good performance out of it, at least looking at TechEmpowered benchmarks. Have you looked at the implementation? Only java nio and coroutines on top. Feature wise, I guess there is a lot missing, but kudos to the author.

Not inspected it yet, just found it today from TechEmpower
TechEmpower benchmarks, though, should be taken with a grain of salt. Many “framework” code are so aggressively tuned to the specific benchmark that noone will actually get that kind of performance in some real case. I’ve benchmarked many frameworks in their “default, out of the box” configuration, and I never saw such big differences.
See for example Data Update tab, pronghorn is performing not so good there.

Oh for sure, I definitely agree, though at least the code measured is transparent, so that you can usually notice such things. And in the end, this is a set of micro benchmarks, I just like to look at it as a reference to find new web frameworks
For the pronghorn, I am more amazed if it is done by one person in the last half a year or so (since it is build ono coro-s) then by it's performance. It is too bare bones to be equally measured against "fuller" frameworks. But it looks like it definitely got some things right.
