Both of the new adformats doesn’t count towards the 3 ads per page limit applicable to your account. Currently both of these ad formats will serve only for mobile optimised website and is injected on to your page via an asynchronous javascript code. So it will not affect your sites loading in any manner. The code is generic and you can use the same code across all the pages. So simply a script on the head section will do the job. Also on the google adsense dashboard you can switch on and off these ad formats easily with just a click.
