It's a C extension.
That would explain why it's faster.
That's a pretty bad idea if you want your framework to be widely adopted.
You'll need full access to your web server in order to install the extension.
But I guess that's not the goal here.

And from my point of view, nowdays, any "semi-proffesional" web project has full access to server, you can get a small VPS for les than 10$ at month nowdays... or even free in Amazon!!

i have read about extension , i like to know is it possible to port something like this idea to Yii
something like extension which if user installed can add to config and run ,
but not forcing user

It looks more professional from the architecture and reminds me of J2EE projects (e.g. IOC Container like Google Guice or Tapestry's IOC)
From a business point of view, what counts is the existing modules/code you can re-use and avoid having to write it yourself - which is a drawback for PhalconPHP.
However, if you have many modules available for Yii - and those modules need rework or performance tuning or security patches - or are not available for Yii2 yet, it might be better to start from scratch with PhalconPHP then sticking with Yii-Framework.
