Fastest for large, static worlds: Fixed Polygon Shapes or Loop/Edge Shapes?

I import a lot of static level polygons from my level editor. I'm wondering if it is fastest to use fixed polygon shapes or loop shapes. I do not need inside edge collision so there is no downside to loops.

Anyone ran any intensive benchmarks? I will try, but if there is prior work.. always useful. thanks

Edges are fine.

Thanks for reply. Do you know if they are faster than polygons for this purpose?

they are not faster than polygons, but if u have a tile engine or something, edges dont have the ghost bug.
i have testet it with 400k eges, performance was still good.

Understood. Thank you. Yes i have a tile based engine. my editor does some polygon simplifcation to combine across tiles, but i definitely need to negate the ghost bug.
