Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor QX9770 ReviewSun, Nov 18, 2007 - 10:00 PM
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 QX9770 processor easily took the lead on WinRAR 3.71 by beating out the rest of the processors.
