I'll run a benchmark
I upgraded the test wiki container on my laptop from Ubuntu 14.04 to
16.04, which also necessitated a platform switch from schroot to
systemd-nspawn. The benchmark is thus approximately native performance
on a Core i5 4210U @ 1.7 GHz. I killed the usual CPU hogs so that
everything was quiet in top. Then I ran benchmarkParse.php on a copy
of the [[Australia]] article, including templates, with --loops 3.
The results were
PHP 7.0: 1.59 seconds
HHVM 3.21: 1.75 seconds
So PHP 7 was significantly faster on this test.
Note that I ran HHVM with JIT enabled; total wall clock time including
compilation and warmup was about 75 seconds, compared to 13 seconds
for PHP 7.
The test wiki has Scribunto with LuaStandalone. Debug logging was
disabled for this test.
