Is there any difference between Great Swords, Battle Axes, and War Hammers?

Battleaxes and greatswords swing at the same speed, but battle axes do more damage (They are supposed to swing slower but they do not.). Warhammers swing a little slower and do more damage than battle axes.

So, in power:

Warhammer > Battleaxe > Greatsword


And in speed:

Battleaxe = Greatsword > Warhammer


Personally I feel a warhammer is too slow for my liking. The most optimal choice is between that or a battleaxe but the difference in damage is so small you can use whatever looks good or that you like and it'll be fine.

Aside from attack speed, I prefer the Warhammer perk - Skull Crusher - Each rank means the hammer ignores 25% of enemy armour... Not that trash in this game ever wears much. The perks for swords and axes are a bit meh.
