You can safely ignore the performance aspect of OO design.

In ye olden times, OO was considered default-bad for writing algorithms, because objects are generally bigger than base-types, which is mathematically bad for performance if you have to cycle through 100 million of them.

Today, it just doesn't matter, because developers don't really have to do math anymore.
We include a package or library or header to implement the proven best version of the algorithm we need. And that's it.

15~20 years ago, C++ developers got paid to write custom data structures and algorithms because performance was a thing, code sharing was uncommon and hardware was slow.
Nowadays, most of the C++ work is deleting all of that old custom stuff while replacing it with standardized parts, because maintaining custom code is bad for everything, including performance ironically.
