Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if" was the faster by 0.0088 seconds, (1.104% faster)

if 100%
ternary 98.896%

The if test took 0.7892 seconds.
The ternary test took 0.798 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 128,099 loops for a total of 2,561,980 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.441) milliseconds per 128,099 loops.
  • Total difference 8.81 milliseconds for 2,561,980 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.2137) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.5393) 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'] = $GLOBALS['dummy_data'];
	else
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 6;
}

The second test, "ternary", was:

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