Results: Compression Tools

System Builder Marathon, Q2 2013: $1300 Enthusiast PC

The chart below represents three separate benchmarks. WinZip EZ reflects the best compression possible. That's a processor-bound test, and the extra-thorough work translates to longer times to completion. The OpenCL metric leverages graphics resources to help compress files larger than 8 MB. In this one, the GeForce GTX 680 defies what we saw in Photoshop. And of course, in the CPU-based test, comparable performance across the board simply demonstrates the similar processors in our two machines.

Without GPU acceleration, WinRAR and 7-Zip yield practically zero difference.
