How does nginx keep up with logging thousands requests per second

Hi guys,
I've seen some reports on the web claiming nginx can serve in the order of 10000
requests per second (correct me if I'm wrong).

I also see that logging to syslog is supported.

Is logging to syslog or filesystem comparable with the speed which nginx can
serve content ?  If not how does nginx keep up with logging (being a slow
operation) so many requests ?
