Compression and Encryption

7-Zip Compression

I decided to replace the WinRAR test with a more repeatable and threaded application – 7-Zip.

The Intel Core i7-7700K Review - Kaby Lake and 14nm+ - Processors 9

At 1, 2 and 4 thread testing, the Core i7-7700K falls slightly behind the results of the Core i7-6700K.


TrueCrypt Encryption

TrueCrypt is one of the most popular pieces of software for disk encryption, and it includes a handy benchmark mode to test the capabilities of your processor. Keep in mind that many modern CPUs include AES acceleration which is used throughout TrueCrypt.

TrueCrypt shows a 3.6% advantage in favor of the Core i7-7700K processor over the 6700K.
