SolidWorks and Multiple Monitors; Mosaic or No?

I used to have two mismatched monitors (Dell 2314 [1920 x 1080] and an older Dell monitor with 1280x1024). Now I have two matched monitors; two Dell 2314 monitors attached to an eDock with my Dell M4800 laptop docked to the eDock.

My M4800 has a Nvidia Quadro K2100M video card installed with the Solidworks recommended driver version.

"Mosaic allows hardware acceleration across multiple displays by treating them as a single large display." [However, Mosaic does not work with mismatching monitor resolutions]

Will I get any performance improvement with SolidWorks if I enable Mosaic?

I normally do not have SolidWorks span multiple monitors, my normal workflow has SolidWorks on one monitor while mail, web browser, excel, etc are on the other monitor.
