Results: Compression Tools
The chart below represents three separate benchmarks. WinZip's -EZ switch forces the app to use maximum compression. That's a processor-bound test, and its more taxing workload translates to longer completion times. The OpenCL-accelerated version leverages graphics resources to help compress files larger than 8 MB.
Our OpenCL-enabled benchmark favors the previous build's GeForce GTX 780 Ti, but by a small margin. When it comes to the WinZip CPU and EZ tests, the Core i7-4770K in last quarter's build demonstrates a commanding lead.
