"What's new in Python 3.8" says that this change speeds up the LOAD_GLOBAL opcode by 40%.
That seems meaningless as a program cannot have LOAD_GLOBAL in isolation so any test would have other bytecodes as well.

What's the evidence for the claimed speedup?
What's the speedup on the benchmark suite?
