Does terrain use more computing power than parts?


#1

I have seen many games using terrain for their games. Terrain definitely seems more optimised for making ground and terrain, basically. However, parts can give a different feel which can benefit you especially when everyone else is using terrain. So, I would like to ask which is better for a computer to calculate? Terrain or parts?
