Performance – Computation and File Compression
Let’s turn our attention to some computationally intensive tasks: large number calculations and file compression.
This is interesting. While in the previous Sandra tests we saw the Asus G51J performing much faster than the Asus K42F in both CPU and memory, we can see that this has little effect in the above applications. But with 8 threads running in 7-Zip, we see the hyperthreading give the Asus G51J an edge over the K42F.
