Analyze Test Configuration:

7-Zip Compression 21.06

Test: Compression Rating

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 225 public results since 25 November 2021 with the latest data as of 6 December 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
