When was the last time you did serious PHP? Your claims are random rants at best. PHP is not very very sloooooooow, your I/O ops, DB queries are.
PHP7.2 with opcache is a breeze. There are also frameworks like phalcon, yaf etc which are probably what you meant by "compiled" (or analogous). PHP8 with JIT will be a different animal.
Have you even tried swoole?
