Yes, IPC on Windows uses TCP sockets so there is no performance benefit to using IPC transport versus TCP transport. They are implemented the same way.

We would love to have a named pipes implementation for Windows.

Last days I was studying a little bit of ZeroMQ and now want to use it in my project since my goal is to improve performance between the communication of two different apps running on the same machine.
