Benchmarking Drupal 8 against Drupal 7
I thought it would be interesting to benchmark the latest Drupal 8 dev against the latest stable Drupal 7 release to see the difference.
- Dell Latitude E6520 Notebook
- 8Gb RAM
- Windows 7
- WAMP Server 2.2
- PHP 5.3.13
- MySQL 5.5.24
- Apache 2.2.22
I've installed fresh version of Drupal 8 (latest pulled from git) and Drupal 7.23 with the minimal profile selected for both. The only additional module selected is Devel to collect benchmarking information. No caching.
