RARLAB - WinRar v3.71 has a multithreaded version of the RAR compression algorithm, which improves the compression speed on computers with several CPU, dual core CPU and processors with hyperthreading technology. Multithreading is enabled by default, but you can disable it in "General" part of "Settings" dialog.
When we ran WinRAR on the Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor QX6700 we noticed that it used roughly 80-84% of the 2.66GHz quad-core processor, so it makes for a decent SMP benchmark.
Results: The Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor easily took the lead on WinRAR 3.71 by beating out the Intel QX6850 by roughly 10%.
