Your question is not clear. "Speed-up" compared to what?

If we would compare it to VPA then we see ~53 times speed-up:

>> A = vpa(rand(1000));

>> x = vpa(rand(1000,1));

>> tic; y = A*x; toc;

Elapsed time is 1.143934 seconds.

>> A = rand(1000,'mp');

>> x = rand(1000,1,'mp');

>> tic; y = A*x; toc;

Elapsed time is 0.021398 seconds.

From my point of view is very important to compare multi-precision arrays creation, too!!!

>> tic; A = vpa(rand(1000));toc

Elapsed time is 16.637381 seconds.

>> tic; A = rand(1000,'mp');toc Elapsed time is 0.026866 seconds.

So in this case, you can see ~ 619x speed up!!!

I think, the MCT is really excellent tool ... :)

Just as a note, we have more examples of VPA vs. MCT in our user's manual:
