Subject: phpactiverecord vs CakePHP (model only) performance

I am designing a Flex application. I intend to use an AMF Data Service (currently I'm using a Zend Framework AMF service included with Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP).

I'm considering using an active-record design pattern for the db interface. I could use the Model component of CakePHP alone, or I could use php.activerecord.

Are there any performance differences that I should be aware of in comparing the two?
