[PD] Is Pd somehow more efficient than Max/MSP?

Hi all,
I am new to this mailing list, so pleased to meet you!

I have been thinking about this question since a while: is it possible to
say that Pd is more efficient than Max?
In one hand is pretty obvious that Max requires more space for
documentation and all the externals and whathever, but does this lead more
latency and more cpu-wasting when it comes to audio synthesis? I also did
not have the possibility to test Max in an old PC.

Plus, -if there is a newbie-friendly possible answer- in which ways do the
overall architectures of the two programs diverge?
I am not talking about the obvious differencies about the two programs
which can be easily found on the Internet.
I am also sorry if this question was already asked, but I did not found any
thread about it (and it is possible that I searched wrong!).

Thanks a lot
