Pigz vs. Gzip?

I just started using the threaded gzip program named "pigz" - does this benchmark have a way to compare the two?

Biased?

I think this test is a little bit biased.. it creates a 2GB (zero byte) file on disk. And then compresses it with output to /dev/null.

But that means the test also depends on the disk read speed.
