It is impressive. I didn't know that catch2 takes so much computation time. Could you include Boost.Test and lightweight_test from Boost.Core in your benchmark?

The small binary size and compilation time suggests that some of the tests are completely evaluated at compile-time. Is that what happens?

Syntax-wise, the absence of macros is impressive, although there is a steep price to pay, I have to writing out lambdas and literals excessively, which leads to a lot of squiggly characters to type. I don't like macros, but the downsides of macros are not relevant in a test framework.
