WinRAR is a Windows data compression tool that focuses on the RAR and ZIP data compression formats for all Windows users. It has a built-in benchmark which tests the system for compression speed.
WinRAR shows a 1% improvement with Core i7-3770K.
WPrime uses a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we’re sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f’(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum. We ran the 1024M preset to test the system performance.
WPrime results show a solid 11% performance improvement with Ivy Bridge based Core i7-3770K.
