Optimized build advantages

I was just wondering if there were any response time or input delay advantages to using a CPU optimized build for an RPi3 or if it's just to keep CPU usage lower over all.

If there are any advantages do you have any idea what kind of numbers the difference would be?


The optimized build will essentially use less cpu for the same throughput. E.g a webcam works better with the optimized build because more of the processing is done in the additional cpu registers used by the optimized build. Also, because it uses less cpu, it will improve throughput for some applications like e.g transferring large files from usb stick.
