Historical ResultsBased on (7) saved test runs, The test labeled "float" was (on average) the faster by 0.0153 seconds, (1.784% faster)
The float test took 0.8409 seconds.
The integer test took 0.8561 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 221,899 loops for a total of 4,437,980 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 221,899 loops.
- Total difference 15.27 milliseconds for 4,437,980 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.
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'];
