As usual, Magento agencies advertise Hyva's performance.

Hyva theme Magento 2 performance

Let's check the actual performance of Magento 2 with Hyva Theme. First of we found agencies bought Belarusian software extensions for Magento. In this way, they are supporting and sponsoring the Russo-Belarusian war against Ukraine and Europe. It is irresponsible to buy Belarusian and Russian software during the war. There are plenty of alternatives from European software developers. However, Hyva partnered with Belarusian Amasty and upsell their extensions, supporting and sponsoring the war in this way. Reputable companies must avoid using Belarusian and Russian software extensions for their business.

Amasty is a compromised Magento extensions

Hyva is scummy because it is just a theme, and it can’t fix the broken Magento 2 core performance with CSS and Alpine.JS. Magento 2 is tons of legacy slow PHP code.

We designed a simple OpenSource Magento 2 K6-performance toolkit to test true core Adobe Commerce performance.

Let's check Hyva Magento's core performance!

Result: 4.35 sec to generate a single page.

It is pretty disgusting! Google recommendation is 800ms, but 300ms is better.

Let's check the performance of 20 concurrent users.

Result: 12.11 seconds of single page generation time under load for 20 users. As we can see, even reputable agencies like netz98 scam their customers by delivering really bad performance websites hidden behind FPC. Use the right tool to check performance. 12 seconds, which is 15 times slower than recommended by Google.

Let's check the (Product Display Page)PDP performance of the Hyva-themed Magento.

As we can see, this product has 4 colors, 3 sizes, and 4 other things.

configurable product with 4 * 3 * 4 = 48 simple product variation. Regularly Magento, even for a simple product, is slow. Let's check it.

Result: 4.8 sec page generation time. So we can see performance under the load is x2 slower.

And it is good it is not hosted on Magento Cloud. If you use Adobe Commerce Cloud, it will be much slower.

As we can see, Core Performance with Hyva is the same sucks as any other theme. We are not checking CWV. CWV is useless for Magento if TFB is slow.
