Matlab uses some highly optimized matrix operations libraries (BLAS/
LAPACK for example.) I assume you use Boost uBLAS which is quite a good
library but it has nowhere near the amount of investment put into it as
does Matlab.

That being said, you should post the code. You might be doing something
silly like copying vectors in a loop.
