Result: Discarded

The test labeled "==" was the faster by 0.0574 seconds, (8.550% faster)

== 100%
=== 91.45%

The == test took 0.6141 seconds.
The === test took 0.6715 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 140,807 loops for a total of 2,816,140 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000020) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.870) milliseconds per 140,807 loops.
  • Total difference 57.41 milliseconds for 2,816,140 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.1464) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.0949) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "==", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy3'] = $GLOBALS['dummy1'] == $GLOBALS['dummy2'];

The second test, "===", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy3'] = (int) $GLOBALS['dummy1'] === (int) $GLOBALS['dummy2'];
