AMD Desktop Trinity Update: Now With Core i3 And A8-3870K

The Sandy Bridge design lands right between AMD’s new A10 and A8 chips in this latest version of WinZip, which is better-optimized for threading than any of its predecessors.

Although WinRAR is purportedly able to exploit many cores, the dual-core Sandy Bridge-based chip takes first place. Both dual-module APUs follow close behind, though.
