Conditional Format vs. Calculated Fields

I've inherited a large database to work on that was written pre-conditional formatting. The database contains many calculated fields that today would most likely be written as conditional formatting to the layout instead. For example, a calculation that changes the font size based on the length of the field data. Users have complained about response time with the database, so I am working to make the database more efficient. Does anyone know if there are any efficiency gains to be had by removing the calculated field definitions and replacing them with conditional formatting instead?
