My opinion in really heavily built extremely capable bikes are that, outside of a few extreme cases, slower overall. There is no doubt that double crown forks, DD tires, coil shocks and so on feel great and improve how a bike feels.  Problem is this crappy 1/4 hp meat motor I'm working with. It feels every scrap of weight and rolling resistance, to the point that too much of that stuff prevents me from maintaining my inertia and flow state at ideal levels. I've tried both ways for certain and find a lose very little on the downs being very cautious regarding weights and rolling resistance, but gain a whole bunch every where else, particularly with the burly tires.
