Good domain-specific tools are written as command-line utilities, and are even better if you wrote them yourself for your project.
Text editing (which includes syntax highlighting etc.) is also much better with a text editor.

Editors are also more flexible, scale better for large projects, and can do anything you need them to do.
An IDE is extremely constrained and won't work properly whenever you need to do something that wasn't planned by the developer who coded it.

Garbage collection necessarily wastes memory by factor of 1.5 to 2.
The collection itself also slows down the program, and in some languages cannot even happen asynchronously.

Finally, the most important aspect for program performance is locality and memory layout, something you cannot even optimize for in a language where every object is a pointer to some memory on a garbage-collected heap.
