Data Compression and Encoding
Our own custom WinRAR benchmark, this test takes a large 650 MB text file and compresses it with the highest compression option.
LAME MT MP3 Encoding
This custom test uses the LAME MT engine to benchmark encoding a 650 MB WAV file into a standard 128 kbps MP3 file. We used the Microsoft compiler for the most fair results.
In our WinRAR and LAME MP3 encoding tests both platforms come out in a dead heat.
