I've upgraded to a Intel E6400 system recently. Overall the computer runs great. However, the compression program I like, 7-Zip, totally sucks on it. The average decompression speed is 3300Kbps. My old P4 3.06GHz averaged 13-18Mbps.
I'm using the latest version of 7-Zip and have the newest chipset drivers (Asus P4NSLI...NForce 570 Chipset). Running 2 Gigs OCZ PC5400 XTC Gold Ram.
Any suggestions as to why this program runs so slow?
PS - I haven't tried another compression program yet...will try that tonight.
