Computational Efficiency of GnuPG ciphers and hashes

Its often been mentioned on this mailing list, that 3DES is
notoriously slow.  On the flipside, what cipher is considered the
fastest -- or the most computationally efficient (if this term even
applies)?  Are there similar relative results among the GnuPG hashes?
