I would expect to still see a similar performance hit from enabling SHA256, but I don't really know.  Someone needs to test it.  Justin's point about the performance of OpenSSL is most of the picture, but there is still some additional overhead due to having another analyzer attached to a file so I wouldn't go totally off of the openssl benchmark testing.
