Efficiency of payloads

Do you have any idea of the efficiency trade off of using PIEventBasic over PIEvent?


Typically PIEventBasic is fine for a lot of needs, but right now I am quite interested in the questionable bit that comes with the PIEvent payload.  So, if I am running say 1,000 PI Points through an input adapter using PIEventBasic, will it be "slower" if I switched the payload to PIEvent?  (Is it additional calls under the hood to get the additional information, like the annotation?)  


I should get some time to test it out this week but if you already know the answer, it would be most helpful.
