If you are going to call a dll from a web page, then asp would be faster, but the dll would be much more flexible, since it wouldn't only be tied down to the web page. You could create a standalone app, and use the same dll without rewriting code. You could also place the dll in an MTS transaction if you needed to in the future.

It really depends on how much code you can move into an ActiveX
object. If it is a lot, then it has to be faster, since ASP is
interpreted script and only uses variant variables. The DLL will be
compiled to machine code.
