How to remove a milion files on Linux?

Normally, I used to rm command to remove file on Linux. Today, I must to remove more a milion files, do you use rm command to do this??? The answer for this question to be "NO".
After I have Googled and the solution for this issue you try to use "rsync" command.
rsync -a --delete /tmp/empty /tmp/session/

Which is the fastest?

rm: deleting millions of file is a no-can-do!

find -exec: an option, but slower!

find -delete: fast and easy way to remove loads of files.

rsync --delete: without doubt the quickest!
