Result: Discarded

The test labeled "float" was the faster by 0.0486 seconds, (3.542% faster)

float 100%
integer 96.458%

The float test took 1.3241 seconds.
The integer test took 1.3727 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 273,511 loops for a total of 5,470,220 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.431) milliseconds per 273,511 loops.
  • Total difference 48.62 milliseconds for 5,470,220 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (11.2924) milliseconds and Code 2 was (13.3928) 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'];
