ASRock 775Dual-VSTA Motherboard ReviewThu, Aug 31, 2006 - 12:00 AM
WinRAR is a powerful archive manager. It can backup your data and reduce size of email attachments, decompress RAR, ZIP and other files downloaded from Internet and create new archives in RAR and ZIP file format. We used the built-in benchmark and hardware test which keeps the testing on the CPU and memory, thus keeping the hard drive or file sizes and types from affecting the outcome. This will give us the fastest compression speed of the CPU and memory subsystem.
The Intel board is able to process data faster in WinRAR at every setting compared to the ASRock. This test is especially sensitive to memory bandwidth.
Again the Bad Axe holds a significant advantage when using the multithreaded option in WinRAR.
