    It's actually not an "interpreter for PHP," it's a bytecode virtual machine, similar to the JVM and the .NET CLR. It was designed to work especially well for PHP compiled into its bytecode, but as we can see, it can also support other languages.

      I think that when php zend developers implement JIT on PHP 7 it will be faster than HHVM given that current php 7 implementation mostly matches that of hhvm without any kind of JIT.

        I jumped on the hype train and tried HHVM on my VPS, but it crashed frequently (especially when first visiting a new page). Later I realized it crashes because 512M memory isn't enough for its JIT compilation. It's not suited for small servers, so now I'm stuck with the standard interpreter.
