there are so many factors.
however as Frank_Rizzo says your question doesn't make sense!
are you confusing database speed and the time the webpage takes to render in the browser?
most likely there are three factors,
1) your php code and how long it takes to connect to the database, how long the database takes to process the commands and then send the data/recordset back to the php cade.
2) how long your code takes to process the recordset/s returned by the database and turn it into html.
3) how quickly the 'html' is sent to the browser and how quickly the browser renders it.
