The test labeled "<?php ?>" was the faster by 0.0478 seconds, (5.652% faster)

<?php ?> 100%
echo 94.348%

The <?php ?> test took 0.7983 seconds.
The echo test took 0.8461 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 138,987 loops for a total of 2,779,740 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000017) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.391) milliseconds per 138,987 loops.
  • Total difference 47.82 milliseconds for 2,779,740 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.1530) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.2890) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "echo", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	echo 'some text';

The second test, "<?php ?>", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
{
	?>some text<?php
}
