For columns with equal distribution (for skewed distribution it's hard to say):
- Distinct spools and redistibutes all rows, then eliminates duplicate rows -> efficient if the number of rows per value per AMP is low
- Group by eliminates duplicate rows in the first step locally, then redistributes the result sets and eliminates duplicate rows a second time -> efficient if the nuber of rows per value per AMP is high
- If PI-columns are aggregated ("computed locally" in explain) then Group By is always more efficient.
- And don't forget that a subquery is automatically distinct, but using Group By overrides that.
