MySQL Int: Signed Vs Unsigned - Performance Benefits?

Greetings,

As I was going through my MySQL database, I realized that none of my “int” columns have negative values and probably never will. Although the “int” column is set to “Signed”.

If I set an “int” column to “Unsigned”, is there any kind of performance benefits or any other kind of benefits?

Thanks
Kind regards

There’s this.

The benefit is larger positive range of values. No performance benefit.
