Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "ternary" was (on average) the faster by 0.0248 seconds, (4.277% faster)

ternary 100%
if 95.723%

The ternary test took 0.5543 seconds.
The if test took 0.579 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,714 loops for a total of 2,594,280 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 129,714 loops.
  • Total difference 24.76 milliseconds for 2,594,280 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, "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;
