Is NFS performance faster with UDP vs TCP?

I'm looking for the fastest possible performance (even at the expenses of data integrity) from NFS.

Does NFS on UDP make things faster than a TCP connection?

UDP should be faster. How much it would be in your network, it's hard to say (depends on the fact how many losses you have).
