PHP Benchmarks

Performance comparison of PHP code alternatives.

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if ($x) if ($y)" was the faster by 0.0855 seconds, (6.896% faster)

if ($x) if ($y) 100%
if ($x && $y) 93.104%

The if ($x) if ($y) test took 1.1544 seconds.
The if ($x && $y) test took 1.2399 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 256,140 loops for a total of 5,122,800 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000017) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.275) milliseconds per 256,140 loops.
  • Total difference 85.51 milliseconds for 5,122,800 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.8446) milliseconds and Code 2 was (10.1547) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "if ($x) if ($y)", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
{
	if ($GLOBALS['dummy_false'] === false)
		if ($GLOBALS['dummy_true'] === true)
			$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 42;
}

The second test, "if ($x && $y)", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
{
	if ($GLOBALS['dummy_false'] === false && $GLOBALS['dummy_true'] === true)
			$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 42;
}
