UntypedAbstractActor

abstract class UntypedAbstractActor extends AbstractActor

If the validation of the ReceiveBuilder match logic turns out to be a bottleneck for some of your actors you can consider to implement it at lower level by extending UntypedAbstractActor instead of AbstractActor. The partial functions created by the ReceiveBuilder consist of multiple lambda expressions for every match statement, where each lambda is referencing the code to be run. This is something that the JVM can have problems optimizing and the resulting code might not be as performant as the untyped version. When extending UntypedAbstractActor each message is received as an untyped Object and you have to inspect and cast it to the actual message type in other ways (instanceof checks).
