I was excited about the release of PHP 7. I’ve hosted some of my projects with Cloudways. Recently, I've tested a WordPress website comparing PHP 7 with PHP 5.6 And here are my results. i.imgur.com/JuDBpjV.jpg I’ve found PHP 7 is quite faster than any other previous version of PHP. I also noticed by enabling Varnish Cache it reduced page load time little bit more. I’ve used just 5 posts with images to test. If you have large database, it should give more better performance and less page load time. I also noticed PHP 7 is somehow lacking behind when Varnish cache is Disabled. Test PHP 7, on your hosting too. Please share results to get more clear image of PHP 7 performance on different hosting providers.
