1/2 inch kitchen sink valves replacement


I want to replace leaking valves and the standard screw type rubber washer valves always seam to get sediment in them & will not close all of the way.
1/2 x 3/8 exit.

I thought I would replace them with 1/4 turn valves. When in the open position the hole seems very small. Will these valves reduce the water volume at the tap?

Thanks
