The Need for More Speed!
See what the giants are saying.
According to surveys done by Akamai and Gomez, nearly half of web users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, and they tend to abandon a site that isn’t loaded within 3 seconds.
79% of web shoppers who have trouble with web site performance say they won’t return to the site to buy again and around 44% of them would tell a friend if they had a poor experience shopping online.

In the Eyes of Google!
More speed enhances your visitor experience and may also have a positive effect on your site position in Google Search. Here is some background information to speed up Joomla.
Server Side Optimization
Joomla has a built-in cache plugin, which caches the whole joomla page. When this plugin is enabled, first time it caches and next time(s) it just deliver from cache. It does not go to each Joomla component for getting the output. So not K2 and Virtuemart, nor JomSocial. Definitely it is fastest joomla page creation on server.
This works fine for totally static Joomla sites. But if you have anything dynamic on your page, cache plugin mostly give the wrong output. That is because it does not process anything at all. So, if cache plugin is enabled and your site is totally static, you may set a cache time in global configuration something like 21600 for 15 days and get a fast output of Joomla page's html. In this case you don't need anything for server side optimization. This is because Joomla page created on server once and remains same for next 15 days or so.
As this is not the case with most websites, you need to disable cache plugin. Joomla websites are much more than just static HTML pages. If cache plugin is disabled, there is a need of our K2 listings Speed up or Virtuemart Speed up plugins. Our plugins, caches only the component content (K2 or Virtuemart) and not the whole Joomla page. So, other parts of the your Joomla site may contain dynamic content.
So the bottom line is;
1) System Cache plugin disabled - Slow - Everything processed every time. Also the K2 and Virtuemart content.
2) System Cache plugin disable but our K2 Speed Booster and/or Virtuemart Speed Booster enabled. Best in most cases. Our Speed plugins deliver from cache but Joomla remains dynamic. Means, speed without any compromise.
3) Speeding up loading of Joomla Modules with our SpeedPlus Plugin. This plugin is good for all sites and not for any specific Joomla extension.
4) Not recommended and not usable for most websites. System Cache plugin enabled - No processing at all. Page delivered from cache but static.
5) For some dynamic extensions like JomSocial, the server side optimization mostly does not work. In that case you have the choice of optimization on client side when your browser delivers the HTML to the visitor.
Client Side Optimization of Joomla
Regardless the method you use for server side optimization, the client side optimization is equally important. It is actually arranging your html code efficiently that client browser can download as fast as possible. Various tools are available to check your Joomla site speed for client side optimization. As we all know PageSpeed Insights from Google is great.
