According to Input Output Global (IOG), Hydra can reach confirmation times of under one second, compared to the Cardano mainnet latency of 20 seconds.

As the Cardano network advances in terms of growth, with more smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps) launching on the blockchain, Hydra will hope to drastically reduce transaction costs.
