vDS Performance vs standard switch

What are the performance impacts of a vDS versus a standard host based switch. For example in a standard host switch I set the number of ports to 56 which is the default. If I increase the number of ports I can connect more NICs to the vswitch but at a loss in performance because the ESX server is now polling more ports. How does this work in the vDS world? If I create a vDS with 2 portgroups at 128 ports on each how does that translate to ESX ports being monitored and performance?

Thanks,

Rick
