WinRAR 3.9 x64 Beta 1

Scaling Summary: DDR3 Memory On Core 2, Core i7, And Phenom II
WinRAR 3.9 x64 Beta 1

WinRAR compresses files into .rar archives in order to save storage capacity during data transport or archiving and backup. The tool is thread-optimized and uses main memory quite intensively, which is why we see significant performance gains here. In this diagram, the 114.9% noted for the Core 2 Extreme QX9770 represents a 14.9% increase in compression performance. This reflects substantial savings. A 100% increase in performance would cut the compression time in half.

For AMD’s Phenom II X4 955 and the Intel Core i7-975, compression performance increases by 13.8% and 12.5%, which is more than what we found in other benchmarks. Clearly, machines that often have to handle this workload type should be equipped with faster memory.
