A switch statement , Computer Engineering

Which is more efficient, a switch statement or an if else chain?

Ans) The differences, if any, are likely to be small. The switch statement was designed to be efficiently implementable, though the compiler may want to use the equal of an if/else chain (as opposed to a compact jump table) if the case labels are sparsely distributed.
