WinRAR is one of the most common file archiving programs. In our test we use the application’s in-built benchmark utility to determine CPU performance. Performance is measured in KB/s (kilobytes per second), where higher is better.
7-Zip is an open-source file archiving program. We use the application’s built-in benchmark utility to measure CPU performance regarding compression and decompression of files. We test with a dictionary size of 32MB and use all availables threads. The results is displayed in MIPS (millions of instructions per second), where higher is better.
