PHP Benchmarks

Performance comparison of PHP code alternatives.

Test: == vs. === (fail, same types)

No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "===" was the faster by 0.0032 seconds, (0.502% faster)

=== 100%
== 99.498%

The === test took 0.6342 seconds.
The == test took 0.6374 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 164,112 loops for a total of 3,282,240 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.160) milliseconds per 164,112 loops.
  • Total difference 3.20 milliseconds for 3,282,240 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.4805) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.2748) 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'] = $GLOBALS['dummy1'] === $GLOBALS['dummy2'];
