Why is PHP so much slower than Java?

Why is PHP so much slower than Java?


I think the main reason of slowness might be PHP language is dynamic typing. A dynamically typed language is always going to be slower than a statically typed language, because variable types are checked at run-time instead of compile-time. As a result, statically typed languages like Java is going to be significantly faster at run-time, though they typically have to be compiled ahead of time. A JIT compiler makes this less of an issue for dynamically typed languages, but in PHP we don’t have a reliable (built in) one.
