What is the difference between the older single chain cams and the double chain cams?

The older single chain ones only had one chain. The newer double chain ones have two. Hope that cleared it up for ya. BTW welcome to drummerworld.

I figured that out on my own. How does it affect performance and feel?

I guess they say double chain systems are more reliable and won't de-rail and are smoother. I've used strap drive, single chain, double chain and direct drive and to me, the way I see it, so long as your pedal is properly centered and clamped onto the hoop nice and tight, the odds of a malfunction are long to impossible (unless you're one of those swivel foot guys who move their foot side to side, then I'd definitely get a double chain). My foot doesn't have any preference either.
