The memory manager is already a lot faster with generic use then the one in Tp7 or Delphi.

A test with


is totally useless as a lot of programs also allocate and free more blocks in between
resultting in a very different situation.

If you really need a specific memorymanager implementation you can write your own
memorymanager and use it by calling SetMemoryManager()
