It depends on your graphic card and drivers. It also depends on how good you are at using your 3d API. No one is "faster." Most speed from a 3d engine come from culling and efficiency, both can be used with OpenGL or Direct 3D. For the record I use OpenGL.

Remember that more popular does not mean better, faster or more useful. Remember also that you do not have to support both, or either.
