Subject: mutable record fields and performance

How do the implementation of mutable and imuttable record fields differ
in ocaml? Have them any impact on field access performance?

That is, the expression p.x has different performances for the types
{ x:int } and { mutable x:int } for p?

In summary, what additional cost does the use of mutable imposes on a
record field?
