Historical Results

Based on (5) saved test runs, The test labeled "float" was (on average) the faster by 0.0211 seconds, (2.362% faster)

float 100%
integer 97.638%

The float test took 0.8717 seconds.
The integer test took 0.8927 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 188,553 loops for a total of 3,771,052 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 188,553 loops.
  • Total difference 21.09 milliseconds for 3,771,052 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, "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'];
