is_int 100%
Casting 97.963%

The is_int test took 0.6618 seconds.
The Casting test took 0.6755 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 169,257 loops for a total of 3,385,130 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 169,257 loops.
  • Total difference 13.76 milliseconds for 3,385,130 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, "is_int", was:

$a = is_int($GLOBALS['test']);

The second test, "Casting", was:

$a = (int) $GLOBALS['test'] === $GLOBALS['test'];
