48 ports vs stack 2 of 24 ports

I need to implement 40 ports and I'm wondering if put a 48 port switch or put 2 switches of 24 port stacking not model specific but If need  1x N2048 vs 2x N2024 with stack enable.

My question is based if I have 2 units (n2024) do it will get better performance because it have 2 processors instead of 1.

When you stack the processor of each switch is used or the second is not used and all is handle by the main or the principal.

On the N2000 series most of the traffic is handled on a single switch when stacked. The N4000 has higher performance stacking.
