PHP7 really seems to boost WordPress performance

Hello folks, I want to share the results of an analysis that a member of my team did on WordPress performance. The initial idea was to test different versions of WordPress to see how the ram/cpu requirements changed over time. We quickly discovered that PHP 7 gives a huge boost to WordPress capabilities.

One caveat: the tests are done in ‘lab’ testing, meaning that the impact in real life installations, with themes and plugins, and content will certainly be very different and maybe not as dramatic.

That said, I think it’s valuable content to share also here. Have a nice read and let us know what you think:
