We did some benchmarking of apache2-mpm-prefork vs apache2-mpm-itk.
Our results back then were roughly that apache2-mpm-prefork with php
is twice as fast as the itk and when serving static content about 20
times faster -- see for instance
In real world the situations is a bit better. The web browser doesn't
close and reopen the connection for every element on the page. Instead
uses the same connection for all the other requests to the webserver. So
after the initial fork the rest of the page and the following pages are
served from the already forked child.
