I would be interested to see how a raw-array solution compares. There
is going to be some overhead of using a subclass, because of the
attribute lookups that occur on all array creations and because the
subclass is written in Python that could be on the order of 10%.
Quantifying the subclass slow-down would be useful... Also, which BLAS
are you using?
