Historical Results

Based on (2) saved test runs, The test labeled "float" was (on average) the faster by 0.0068 seconds, (0.970% faster)

float 100%
integer 99.03%

The float test took 0.6972 seconds.
The integer test took 0.704 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 192,714 loops for a total of 3,854,270 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 192,714 loops.
  • Total difference 6.83 milliseconds for 3,854,270 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'];
