WinZip is a well-known file compression software. The Zip files produced by this program can be password protected using the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption method. Some new processors are equipped with AES instruction to accelerate this encryption process. Results are measured in the amount of time needed to finish the test. Lower scores are better.
Left 4 Dead 2 – The Sacrifice
Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the original Left 4 Dead action game. It’s built around the relatively old source engine which dates back to Half-Life 2 in 2004. However, because it is highly dependent on overall system performance, this game can still be used to measure out the performance of today’s processor.
For our testing purposes, the graphics settings are set to their lowest positions and the resolution is scaled down to 1024×768 to minimize graphics card influence on the final results.
