Haskell vs. C++

I have been learning C++, and I now know much of the general syntax. Right now, I am concentrating on learning more of the Standard Template Library. However, I have also learned a bit of Haskell, not nearly as much, and I am interested by it.

So, my question is, what are the basic performance differences that I would generally see if I used Haskell instead of C++, in regards to memory and speed?
