The test labeled "==" was the faster by 0.0267 seconds, (2.485% faster)

== 100%
=== 97.515%

The == test took 1.0475 seconds.
The === test took 1.0741 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 282,968 loops for a total of 5,659,360 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.334) milliseconds per 282,968 loops.
  • Total difference 26.69 milliseconds for 5,659,360 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.4347) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.5375) 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'];
