It’s the fastest hash function we know of by a factor of at least 3. On modern Intel x64 CPUs, it hashes 16 bytes per cycle single-threaded. This means in cache it can hash at a rate of 64 gigabytes per second on a 4.2gHz machine.
How robust is it? It cleanly passes every test in smhasher and has produced no collisions on our large datasets as yet.
Looks very interesting IMHO.
