From a computation perspective does using matrices to represent linear algebra give an advantage over computation of linear algebra operations without matrices?

I found that a lot of the matrix operations created more readable and reusable code. But once you reduce the math, I think there is not a difference in performance. One example was doing transformations with matrices was easier with a simple matrix multiply.
