Test the system information
Take a look at PHP 7.2 Beta 1 and PHP 7.1.7, 7.0.21, and 5.6.31 performance comparison
It is obvious that in terms of performance testing, from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.0, performance has grown significantly. But this is nothing to be surprised, but see the use of PHP 7.2 Beta 1 also has a lot of performance to enhance it is a bit unexpected. As you can see from the above, PHP 7.2 is running at 13% faster than PHP 7.1, 20% faster than PHP 7.0, and 2.6 times faster than PHP 5.6.
Phoronix test suite of self-test shows that PHP 7.2 faster and faster, compared to PHP 7.1.7, will be self-test time shortened by 4 seconds, although compared with PHP 5.6 to 7.0 there is a big gap between the changes, still save a little time.
Using a lot of PHP math, DOM objects are used to generate SVG images for rendering tests that are still slightly faster in PHP 7.2.
In general, PHP 7 continues to move in the right direction, with the exception of these modest performance improvements, there are other improvements.
