Symetric FIR Filter for Convolution

I am designing a Type 1 Linear Phase FIR filter meaning it has symmetric coefficients with an odd length. Normally when this filters are implemented in hardware the required number of multipliers is half because of the symmetry. While doing the convolution in roon using this kind of symmetric filter does it help that roon also needs half the computational power compared to a non-symmetric fir filter of the same length.

I know there is a way to see the total cpu resource usage, is there a possibility to see how much computational power the convolution filter is taking it self, so it would be easier to compare filters with different lengths.
