How fast is your parser?

I am looking for parser speed numbers. I found this paper Deep Parsing In Watson that gives a speed of about 5000 words per second.

I also found this paper Chunk Parsing Revisited that gives a speed of about 1600 words per second.

Are there parsing technologies out there that are faster than this?

I have been developing a new incremental parser that achieves parse speeds of about 48,000 words per second. I want to know if there is value in this kind of performance. Here is a link that shows the details of the performance.

Thanks for your help,
Bob
