Historical Results

Based on (7) saved test runs, The test labeled "if" was (on average) the faster by 0.013 seconds, (1.489% faster)

if 100%
ternary 98.511%

The if test took 0.8586 seconds.
The ternary test took 0.8716 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 218,561 loops for a total of 4,371,226 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 218,561 loops.
  • Total difference 12.98 milliseconds for 4,371,226 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'] = $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;
