Packet Switching and Circuit Switching.

I have been reading up on these two concepts and I am starting to get the opinion that packet switching is faster than circuit, Is this true?

I appreciate circuit could clog down the network for other traffic, but surely as at each hop no lookup is done for the best path, doesn't this make circuit switching faster?

Any help would be great,

    In modern equipment look ups are extremely fast and there isn't much of a difference in performance.
