    PHP 7.4.0 GA stable release was made on November 28, 2019. Below are PHP 7.4.0 vs 7.3.12 vs 7.2.25 vs 7.1.33 vs 7.0.33 PHP (php-fpm) benchmarks on latest updated Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 LEMP stack based dedicated server running CentOS 7.7 64bit. Just like I did for PHP 7.2 benchmarks and PHP 7.3 benchmarks. Reminder, if you find Centmin Mod LEMP stack useful, please support Centmin Mod in keeping the project alive, Ways you can support Centmin Mod.

    Test System Info

    System:
    • OVH MC-32 Intel Core i7 4790K
    • 32GB Memory
    • 2x240GB SSD
    • 250Mbit Network Bandwidth
    • CentOS 7.7 64bit
    • Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 LEMP stack - Nginx 1.17.6, MariaDB 10.1.43 MySQL, + CSF Firewall
    • BHS, Canada
    PHP 7.4 vs 7.3 vs 7.2 vs 7.1 vs 7.0 Benchmarks

    Tests use following scripts
    Notes:
    • Tested Remi YUM repo SCL based PHP versions versus Centmin Mod built PHP versions with and without Profile Guided Optimisations.
    • PGO = Profile Guided Optimisations (for Wordpress, MediaWiki and Drupal like PHP web applications and similar PHP execution patterns.)
    • Centmin Mod defaults to non-PGO PHP-FPM builds for PHP 7 by default. PGO built PHP might be faster for some specific PHP code but slower for others so choose PGO wisely.
    • Latest tests are with Kernel updates for meltdown/spectre vulnerability patches which can reduce PHP performance compared to benchmarks done prior to November 28, 2019
    • Linux Kernel 3.10.0-1062.4.3.el7.x86_64 was used
    PHP Benchmark Charts
    • The charts' bars are colour coded for PHP build type - Remi Yum vs Centmin Mod vs Centmin Mod + PGO.
    • The charts' data labels are colour coded for PHP version tested for easier comparison between PHP build types.
    Times are in seconds where lower is faster

    PHP 8.0 vs 7.4 vs 7.3 vs 7.2 vs 7.1 vs 7.0



    Next PHP version after 7.4 will be PHP 8.0 which is in development. So was curious how PHP 8.0 dev master branch performed on Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 LEMP stack which was just updated to support PHP 8.0 dev master branch builds - including support for Profile Guided Optimizations. PHP 8.0.0 dev built definitely is faster in all tests. Though there was a slight regression for PHP 8.0.0 + PGO enabled bench.php test compared to PHP 8.0.0 non-PGO bench.php test but it was still faster than PHP 7.4.0 !

    PHP 8.0.0 dev benchmarks below also include PHP 8.0.0 dev with new performance feature, PHP JIT enabled. PHP 8 JIT setting for opcache.jit was set to 1235 where default is 1205 consisting of 4 decimal digits - CRTO.

    Added percentage comparison tables against Centmin Mod PHP 7.3.12, 7.4.0, 8.0, 8.0 JIT with and without PGO.

    For example for detailed_benchmark.php reading the 1st row of results for PHP 8.0.0 dev JIT Centmin Mod PHP-FPM with PGO enabled has a time of 1.2377 seconds which is:
    • 32.3% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 7.3.12
    • 23.5% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 7.4.0
    • 20.4% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 8.0
    • 13.5% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 8.0 JIT
    • 20.3% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 7.3.12 + PGO
    • 12.9% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 7.4.0 + PGO
    • 9.5% faster than Centmin Mod PHP 8.0 + PGO
    • 0% faster = even than Centmin Mod PHP 8.0 JIT + PGO
