Result: Discarded

The test labeled "==" was the faster by 0.0015 seconds, (0.260% faster)

== 100%
=== 99.74%

The == test took 0.5743 seconds.
The === test took 0.5758 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 108,128 loops for a total of 2,162,560 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.075) milliseconds per 108,128 loops.
  • Total difference 1.50 milliseconds for 2,162,560 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.9167) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.6521) 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'];
