I hope I've misunderstood your intent.  When I first read this, 
the impression it makes is that you have an interest only in the
one Apache-based Web server with "the best performance".  For
practical use, I think a far more satisfying approach is to look
for a system which is robust, high in performance, and maintain-
able, and *measure* its performance in a test environment to 
estimate whether it is fast enough.  "Fast enough" can be a 
considerably more useful criterion than "fastest possible".
