Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 14 November 2015. Page 2 of 2. 6 Comments

Time for the PHP 7 vs. HHVM benchmarks with the Intel Xeon rig.

Similar to the Ivy Bridge notebook results, PHP 7.0 RC7 was much faster than HHVM 3.10.1 and took nearly just a third of the time as PHP 5.6.15 (the latest stable version) for completing our self-test.

With the render test, PHP 7.0 RC7 went past being three times faster than PHP 5.6.15.

HHVM 3.10.1's sole win in this particular benchmark was just with having lower memory usage.

Overall these results are quite interesting. Besides offering significantly better performance than PHP 5, PHP 7.0 also presents many new features.
