I have never tested that on a computer, but on medium speed cards I found that the time to write the additional storage seemed to offset the savings of the camera processor having to compress, i.e. the buffer depth and frame rate were better compressed not worse. There's obviously some de-compression penalty but my GUESS is that the same applies on a PC in processing. If you test it however, let us know.
