Is there any language that native-compiles faster than D?

I'm surprised that you only have gccgo and not the reference/official
(or whatever it's called) implementation. That one uses a fully custom
tool chain, i.e. custom compiler, custom assembler, custom object format
and custom linker. I'm sure it's faster than gccgo and it might be
faster than D as well.
There's some work on a new Rust backend  as well. Not sure if that
What about Nim and Vala, don't they count since they're generating C code?
