You can profile most the Lisp code with elp.el.

\(...\) is much easier to handle than $...$ because you can see from
the switch if it starts or ends math.  In case of $ we'd e.g. have to
check with `texmathp' if it opens or closes math everytime we
encounter such a character.  That would be far more expensive than
dealing with \(...\).
