Phalcon v2 : faster or slower that 1.3?

From what I have read about Phalcon vs other frameworks comparisons (like Laravel), all agree that Phalcon beats them all in speed. Is there any indication if Phalcon 2 comes with improvements (or decline) in speed vs 1.3?

This has been asked before and there is a rather good answer accepted in that thread.
