GD vs ImageMagick

Well I've seen some code in about creating thumbnails fast, basically some guy wrote an alternative to imagecopyresampled and called it fastimagecopyresampled. I decided to see how fast it really is, so to compare I created a script that would create thumbnails from a bunch of images using ImageMagick.

And here are the results:

Using ImageMagick to generate 6 thumbnails from a gallery.

Now using GD to generate the same thumbnails, I deleted the old ones.

It is clear who the winner is, definitely GD.
