I suppose the byte code style languages (ie, Java) with JIT compiling could be fast enough, you'd still have to be very cautious about managing the garbage collector, though.
C# is also a JIT compiled language... And in C# you can actually create unsafe code where you manage pointers on your own and garbage collect on your own if you need the performance.
