    I am building a site with AJAX search.

    Problem is that I want instant search results like Amazon and not wait 1-2 seconds

    Does your plugin accomplish that?

    Probably.

    In fact it depends on your current site general speed.

    WPSOLR search is virtually instantaneous.

    But after retrieving results from Solr/Elasticsearch, it gives results to your theme. This is where most of the time is spent.

    What do you mean by site general speed? Is that server response time?

    This is your theme’s speed to show/format results that will determine the overall speed.

    Total time = WPSOLR query + your theme’s rendering

    WPSOLR query time is in the order of milliseconds (with a local Solr Elasticsearch installation) .

    How do I measure my theme rendering speed? Could that be bypassed?

    Make an empty search. This is your theme’s rendering.
