Data Compression

The speed of data compression applications and archiving utilities depends a lot on the algorithms they use. As we see, WinZip is somewhat better optimized for Intel CPUs, while in WinRAR the competing Athlon 64 processor works wonders.

By the way, according to the results obtained in WinRAR, which is very sensitive to any changes in the system architecture, larger L2 cache memory is hardly that efficient: the performance boost made only 3%.
