I've recently used tikz, but for relatively simple mathematical sketches. Searching the internet it seems that asymptote is just more adequate for more complicated tasks.

Long story short, I'd suggest to ask your question in the comp.text.tex newsgroup (if you don't have a usenet-account you may follow this link: My experience is that there are very knowledgeable people who are experienced with these packages and hopefully can tell you more about the differences.
