When I saw that PHP 8.1 had been released, I thought back to the jump in performance that 8.0 brought, and how far PHP has come from 5.6. Would the 8.1 increase be as dramatic as each minor version of 7 was? I searched online but found very few results benchmarking PHP 8.1 in any meaningful kind of way. Either they had tested 8.1 when it was in alpha stage, some 5+ months ago, or they just made generic statements such as “5-8% faster”.
