PHP 7.3 Performance Benchmarks Are Looking Good Days Ahead Of Its Release

PHP 7.3 is scheduled to be released on December 6th, 2018.  As always, it’ll bring a few changes and new features (read more about it here or here).  But it’ll also bring a significant performance improvement.  Here are the results of a few benchmarks.  Long story short:

PHP 7.3 is just shy of 10% faster than PHP 7.2 in the popular PHPBench. PHP 7.3 is 31% faster than PHP 7.0 or nearly 3x the speed of PHP5.

Bring it on, I say!
