Compression Benchmark Standings

Post by UpdateNut » Sun Mar 04, 2012 9:14 pm

Overall Standings (after adjusting for the presence of the other compressors):
(Note: I only tested Keka 0.1.4.3 with .7z except for the .jpg file, so I'm not including in here)
(Note 2: Keka 1.0.3 has no better performance than 1.0.1)
(Note 3: I am unable to test Ez7z 2.13 because of errors)

Keka 1.0.1 (349) #59
Ez7z 2.12 #60
CleanArchiver 3.0a6 (39) #63
B1 Free Archiver 0.7.1.1891 #68
7zX 1.7.1 #72
Compress 3.0 (6) #106
TarPit 1.43 #119

Update 6:I've figured out how to set Keka to be default program for opening archives.

Update 5:I have finished benchmarking a more recent archiver, B1 Free Archiver at http://b1.org. Wonderful interface, but doesn't quite match Keka overall in benchmarks. In addition, it's made itself the default application for opening .7z files, with no way to change this. I've messaged the developer about this.

Update 4: I have completed testing on OS X 10.6.8. I have dropped CleanArchiver 2.3.1 and DropLHa from the standings because of their sub standard performance. I have also corrected one of the results for 7zX 1.7.1, so it had to be dropped a little in the rankings. iPackr's download link was to the App Store, and I prefer to not make too many accounts on the Internet, CocoaZip had an annoying bug which caused it to crash if you compressed the same file in a new format after compressing them in another and then tried to drag it away. iZip wanted to install some plugin, which I wasn't interested in. So in short, none of the promised benchmarks of new compressors came through. I'm sorry.

Update 3: I have added 7zX 1.7.1 to the benchmark.

Update 2: I have added DropLHa 3.0.3 to the benchmark, and corrected a repeated typo.

Update: I have added Compress 3.0 (6) to the benchmark, and corrected an error in the results for CleanArchiver 3.0a6 (39). I also corrected an error in the Overall Standings where I failed to take into account the presence of the other file compressors when placing every compressor after CleanArchiver 3.0a6 (39).

I remember what that fool said in 2008 after SB Pro PE 2.483: "Try shooting the M1 with your CV90. Just try it." I did. He's still complaining. Blood may move the wheels of history, but only our cunning keeps the wheels oiled.

Added. ;) Also, I'll be upgrading OS X 10.5.8 Leopard to Snow Leopard soon, so I will test Keka 1.0 for Snow Leopard, and will test all of the other programs again once the upgrade is done (except for DropLHa, which really was abysmal and whose compression format is rare expect for files from Japan, from what I've heard).

I just tested Keka 1.0.1 leo (349). No improvement over 1.0leo (333), but that's to be expected since it's mostly a collection of bug fixes. I'll be ordering the Snow Leopard upgrade today, and once that's installed I'll be testing the Snow Leopard version of Keka, retesting all of the other file compressors in the benchmark (with the exception of DropLHa), and testing 3 new ones (iZip, iPackr, and CocoaZip).

Mac OS X 10.6.8 is installed, and I'm loving the sheer speed. Keka 1.0.1 (349) results are the same as 1.0.1 for Leopard. More testing continues. :keka:

I have updated the standings and the results with B1 Free Archiver included.

This is very useful!

I am much more interested in speed than size. Am I overlooking a result for speed?

No, you are not. I made the standings as a measurement of raw compression only.
