The test labeled "more" was the faster by 0.018 seconds, (1.993% faster)

more 100%
less 98.007%

The more test took 0.8854 seconds.
The less test took 0.9034 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 235,833 loops for a total of 4,716,660 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.900) milliseconds per 235,833 loops.
  • Total difference 18.01 milliseconds for 4,716,660 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.6480) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.6472) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "more", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 16384);

The second test, "less", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 32);
