number of MTD partitions

What would be better: one big or several small MTD parttions on NAND chip?

It is 32M byte chip, we used to have 4 patitions each 8M byte, now I would
like to use one 32 M byte, and are looking for pros/sons in both cases.

Would n of GC at startup be better than 1?
Would scan of 1 big partition be equal to sum of n small partition scans?

Thank you,
