## Benchmarks

* Large degree polynomial multiplication modulo n (sage is twice as fast):

# ....But Magma has the following features which Sage doesn't have (yet)

* fast and correct multivariate polynomial factorisation algorithm * fast Gröbner basis computations mod p (p > 2, p prime) and QQ * fast GCD of multivariate polynomials
