Every output is meant to drive a load. The input pin that is being driven is a load.
You need to make sure that the requirements of the load are met. To do this you need to examine the datasheet of the load or input device.

If this is too much reading, jump to section 7 Conclusion and the two paragraphs before that.

Higher load-driving circuits are generally associated with slower and lower gain than their lower load-driving counterparts (faster and higher gain).

This assumes circuits (or chips) both are of similar era (moment in time)
