Result: Discarded

The test labeled "ternary" was the faster by 0.0373 seconds, (3.177% faster)

ternary 100%
if 96.823%

The ternary test took 1.138 seconds.
The if test took 1.1753 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 280,696 loops for a total of 5,613,920 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.867) milliseconds per 280,696 loops.
  • Total difference 37.33 milliseconds for 5,613,920 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.1893) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.4778) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "if", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
{
	if ($GLOBALS['dummy_true'])
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 2;
	else
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 6;
}

The second test, "ternary", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = $GLOBALS['dummy_true'] ? 2 : 6;
