Benchmark Results: File Compression And File Operations

Windows 8: Double-Checking Performance On Core i7-3770K

File compression and archiving are common PC tasks. We use two popular compression programs that take advantage of all available threads, 7-Zip and WinRAR, for our benchmarks. ABBYY provides us with an OCR benchmark that is also fully threaded. Adobe Acrobat X Pro uses one thread and rounds out our file operation benchmarks.


Windows 8 edges out Windows 7 in three of the four benchmarks, including the single-threaded test. Windows 7 narrowly beats Windows 8 in the remaining one.
