Performance

Hello there. I know this is a broad question, but I just want to ask which is faster in terms of overall performance phalcon php or express js? I know they are from different languages. I just want to know their differences. I've searched for their benchmarks but I can't find any benchmark comparison between the two. Thanks for your answers. :-)

Express is built in nodejs which is async, while PHP is sync environment.

Refer to this topic for benchmark I did in PHP7 / Phalcon / Nodejs.

Thanks you. Let me understand this. So nodejs base frameworks are faster than php frameworks even phalcon?

Have you read the results posted in a linked topic?

Sorry. Beginner here. Does it mean that the lower the req/s the faster the framework is?

The more req/s (requests per second), the faster the framework is.

In my opinion, Node is just for front end developers that didn't want to learn a new language.
