View Full Version : MySQL 5.0 and OR conditions

02-17-2007, 06:51 AM
I have heard that version 5.0 of MySQL has performance gains for "OR" conditions. Can anyone confirm this? If so, how significant are the performance gains over 4.1?

For instance, I am referring to something like: SELECT * FROM some_table WHERE this_thing = 'something' OR that_thing = 'whatever';
