PHP Benchmarks

Performance comparison of PHP code alternatives.

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if ($x) if ($y)" was the faster by 0.0801 seconds, (13.517% faster)

if ($x) if ($y) 100%
if ($x && $y) 86.483%

The if ($x) if ($y) test took 0.5127 seconds.
The if ($x && $y) test took 0.5929 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 125,502 loops for a total of 2,510,040 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000032) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.007) milliseconds per 125,502 loops.
  • Total difference 80.14 milliseconds for 2,510,040 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.7726) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.1609) 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;
}
