The test labeled "more" was the faster by 0.0107 seconds, (1.340% faster)

more 100%
less 98.66%

The more test took 0.7892 seconds.
The less test took 0.7999 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 209,401 loops for a total of 4,188,020 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.536) milliseconds per 209,401 loops.
  • Total difference 10.72 milliseconds for 4,188,020 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.5251) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.5448) 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);
