add 100%
multiply 99.758%

The add test took 1.1484 seconds.
The multiply test took 1.1512 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 280,931 loops for a total of 5,618,620 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 280,931 loops.
  • Total difference 2.79 milliseconds for 5,618,620 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, "multiply", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = 0;
for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = $GLOBALS['dummy_int'] * 2;

The second test, "add", was:

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