LUTs are available for smaller amounts of storage and therefore faster in access times.  BRAMs are larger and therefore slower in access times.

 

See https://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371599P-01/lvfpgaconcepts/fpga_memory_items/

 

https://www.ni.com/en-us/support/documentation/supplemental/13/the-ni-labview-high-performance-fpga-... has some figures on ranges but as a 2014 document these numbers are now larger and depend on the FPGA type.
