4.5 or 5.1.1 better for VS2008? Considering on performance.

I'm now using 4.5.1289 in vs2008. It's features are enough for me but it's performace is not perfect.

I want to know if 5.1.1 is better for VS2008, just considering on performance.

If 5.1.1 is faster or just as the same as 4.5.1, I think it is worth to try it.

Thank you for your comments.

Considering that Jetbrains will give you a 30 day free trial, your best bet is to just install ver 5 and see how it goes. If you don't like it go back to 4.5. From personal experience I can't comment directly, since I have 4.5 installed with VS 2008 (which works great for me), and 5.1.1 with VS 2010 (which has pretty poor performance) - judging from that I wouldn't recommend upgrading if you only need VS 2008. But like I say, just install the trial and see how it works.
