This article shows that intersection testing for AABB is only sligthtly slower than for OBB, but the building of the trees used for exact intersection testing is many times faster for AABB than for OBB. Thus for exact collision testing with deformable objects AABB is better than OBB. For undeformable objects OBB is faster but uses more memory.
