Keep in mind that it all depends (to a large extent, anyway) on the
amount of effort you put into it. Take just assembler. When assigned to
do a one-off project where enginering cost must be minimised I'll write
fast and produce a different kind of assembler than for a 1M units
project, where I can spend months to squeeze the code into the next
smaller chip. Bottom line: there is no *the* effeciency of asm or C,
there is a wide range of effort versus code density (and of course there
are many more variables: quality, execution speed, ease of modification,
