JSON serializers benchmark updated – including MongoDB Driver

Just a quick note to say that I have updated the JSON serializers benchmark to use the latest Nuget versions of ServiceStack.Text, Json.Net and JsonFX.

I have also included the JSON and BSON serializers from the MongoDB C# Driver in the test, and since BSON is a binary format I have included protobuf-net as a reference since it’s the fastest binary serializer I know of on the .Net platform:

Compared to the last set of results, you can see that the latest version of JsonFX seems have gone much much slower on deserialization, whilst ServiceStack.Text is still the fastest JSON serializer around. The MongoDB C# Driver’s JSON and BSON both held up pretty well in the test too.
