Zero difference in my testing. The optimizations don't use additional computational power, they just increase the already-present architecture more efficiency.
Think of it like pouring tap water into a bottle with a small opening. Typically, some will pour out. Use a funnel and the same amount of water coming from the tap ALL goes into the bottle without any waste.
Optimizing the way things are used doesn't necessarily mean additional waste.
