WinRAR Compression and Image Processing

In our custom WinRAR x64 benchmark, we take a directory loaded with two hundred, 12.1 megapixel image files and compress them into a single archive using the default WinRAR compression scheme. The length of time it took each system to save the completed archive is represented in the graph below.

Multi-Threaded File Compression Performance

Since this test makes use of multiple processing threads, the current fastest Sandy Bridge quad-core chip on the market does quite have the muster versus the six-core equipped 990X, 980X and 970 in this tests.  Regardless, here again, the Core i7-990X offers a repeat photo-finish, just breaking the tape before the Core i7-980X and offering the fastest time of the test group.
