Based on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "notices" was (on average) the faster by 0.0192 seconds, (1.969% faster)

notices 100%
clean code 98.031%

The clean code test took 0.9769 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 266,368 loops for a total of 5,327,365 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 266,368 loops.
  • Total difference 19.24 milliseconds for 5,327,365 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "notices", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$GLOBALS[dummy]++;

The second test, "clean code", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy']++;
