7-Zip Revisited - Sandy's Back!

7-Zip Revisited 

This time let's see if FX can stand up to its intel counterpart the 2600k.

Comparison Rigs:

AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz
XFX 6990 + Accelero Twin Turbo
ASUS Crosshair V 990FX
4Gb 2200 Mhz G.Skill DDR3
OCZ Revodrive 3 X2 240Gb

Intel i7 2600k - 4.8 Ghz
2 x GTX 560 Ti SLI
8Gb 2200 Mhz G.Skill DDR3
Corsair Force GT 120 Gb

As we expect, the intel i7 2600k @ 4.8 Ghz trades blows with the AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz.

A Special Thanks to grkM3 from the Anandtech community for sharing his results to compare with!


  1. ?
    You're comparing an i7 with 8gB of ram to an FX with 4gB? for something ram and CPU intensive like this, obviously the ram will give edge to the i7...

  2. Thats true! But, thats why i posted the ram specs because that should definitely be put into consideration. ^^
