I'm pretty sure a vortex would be more efficient as far as air usage and consistency. A cloud, however, would be easier to build.

I don't thing there would be any perceptible difference, aside from perhaps feeding reliability.

If you want to improve performance and efficiency, all the relevant parameters are covered in some detail here.
