If you're using Bootcamp then you are running Windows and it's running however fast Windows would run on that hardware.

In theory, Bootcamp would be more efficient for running programs than Parallels since Parallels is running Windows from within OS X so you're essentially sharing all resources between to different OSes.

Using Bootcamp, you're only running Windows and all resources would be available to you.
