Your matrix is stored as a vector<vector>. That's not optimal. For
example, since each vector needs to store its size, the size is
getting stored n times for a n*n matrix... With a good STL
implementation, for large sizes, it may be asymptotically as fast as a
plain C array (like Eigen uses) but for small sizes you're going to
get a big overhead.

Your matrix is dynamic-size (as std::vector is, i.e. size is a runtime
variable), but in your benchmark below you compare it against Eigen's
fixed-size Matrix4f. Fixed-size matrices go much faster than dynamic
size ones...

Other than that, nothing special to say... remember to use gcc 4.2 or
newer -O2 -DNDEBUG for benchmarking Eigen, that's all.
