Portfolio Margin a/c question

Options | Elite Trader - www.elitetrader.com
In following type of trading does it matter if the a/c is Cash a/c / Reg T margin a/c or Portfolio Margin A/c ( all US market)

1) Scenario 1: Say one has 10K in a/c and is long an Option worth 10K ( call / put does not matter)

Given that to be long an option is a limited risk strategy one has to have 100% of that money upfront.

If that is true then having a portfolio margin a/c has no real advantage is it?

Please correct me if I am wrong
