But your comparison isn't fair. You let the regex do way much work than needed. There's no need to parse the entire line, and only assign if there are exactly four fields - you aren't doing that for the split cases either. Also, you only have one set of parens, yet you do four assignments. Picking a simpler regex, and doing just one assignment improves the speed with 50%!
$a=$1 if $myvar =~ /^[^,]+,([^,]+)/

Still not as fast as the split, but it shows that proper Benchmarking is an art.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
