If we're thinking about the same benchmark then it's also outdated.
But regardless I didn't base my decision on that. Sometimes ago (9-10
months) I was testing out a whole bunch of different terminals, some of
the worst offenders when it comes to latency was Alacritty and Termite

ST, in my expereince, has been the 2nd most responsive terminal and
quite close to XTerm. But still not as responsive and thus overtime I
have switched over to it.

It would be interesting to see someone doing a proper benchmark with all
latest terminal versions, since I don't have any data to back up what I
am saying :) So take it as you may.
