For_each vs "auto looping"...is there a difference?

In this video, "Iteration in Bifrost", Jonah says that they are the same.  But he also makes a point of saying that the "for_each" is a parallel process which is much faster.  So does this mean auto looping is also parallel processed?

 

I've tried changing my networks to use "for_each" and I'm not seeing any improvements in performance.  So does this confirm that auto looping is exactly the same as "for_each"?

Both runs in parallel. In most case it's simpler just to use standard auto-looping. For-each is usually when you have to do more complex loops, for exemple, operations that involves dealing with the current_index.
