<?php
echo 'PHP '.PHP_VERSION.'<br>';

$qty = 1000;
$arr = array();
for (
$i = 0; $i < $qty; $i++){
   
$arr[] = rand(-100, 100);
}

$start = microtime(true);
for (
$i = 0; $i < $qty; $i++){
    foreach (
$arr as $v){
       
$v = abs($v);
    }
}
echo
number_format(microtime(true) - $start, 4).'<br>';

$start = microtime(true);
for (
$i = 0; $i < $qty; $i++){
    foreach (
$arr as $v){
        if (
$v < 0) $v = abs($v);
    }
}
echo
number_format(microtime(true) - $start, 4).'<br>';

$start = microtime(true);
for (
$i = 0; $i < $qty; $i++){
    foreach (
$arr as $v){
        if (
$v < 0) $v *= -1;
    }
}
echo
number_format(microtime(true) - $start, 4).'<br>';
?>
Result:
PHP 7.1.33
0.0910
0.0710
0.0550

Conclusion: better to check before using the feature that the number is less than zero. Even better use multiplication by -1 than this function.
