No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "float" was the faster by 0.0082 seconds, (1.797% faster)

float 100%
integer 98.203%

The float test took 0.4493 seconds.
The integer test took 0.4575 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 126,486 loops for a total of 2,529,720 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.411) milliseconds per 126,486 loops.
  • Total difference 8.22 milliseconds for 2,529,720 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.7571) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.5287) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "float", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 0.0;
for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] += $GLOBALS['dummy_float'];

The second test, "integer", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 0;
for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] += $GLOBALS['dummy_int'];
