So 7Zip resurrected from dead, but is it any good?
How does 7Zip 15.14 compare to WinRAR 5.30 performance wise?
>>
I remember my faggot friend wanted to look up a video, but for some reason ended up installing winrar
(I already had 7zip)

What a fucking nigger holy shit
I kicked him out of my house for that
Winrar is ass terrible

>Winrar is ass terrible
Why?
>>
>>52352837
7zip was never dead it was just stable
only windows children need deed dedicated GUIs to do this shit, adults have stable libraries supporting filetypes that get updated when necessary not just for the sake of it

Be honest, did you pay for it?

no, I downloaded pirated 1KB licence file few years ago and it still works with every new version released

The good thing about compression-algorithms is that they always boil down to measurable performance. No room for fanboyism.

Holy balls, I don't get why I haven't been using 7zip all these years. Pretty much the only reason I've held onto winrar was the context menus, I didn't like that 7zip's right click thingies were in a cascaded menu, what a fag I've been. Fixed the context menus to my liking and got file hashing to boot.

nanozip and arc are better

>>52353379
The preset compression settings were changed for the new version of 7zip, it is expected to work better with newer machines, specially those with more ram, but it can be worse. Be sure to tweak the settings. Also, depending on what is to be compressed, different settings will have different effects, as has always been the case.
>>
>>52353726
Well, I bet there's many more who cling to winrar solely for that reason. I didn't like the absence of icons in the context menu either, and guess what, you can enable them. Also, I'll stick with "add to zip" since zip is ubiquitous with normies. Don't want people to go "WHAT IS THIS 7z SHIT CAN'T YOU USE ZIP OMG" on me.
>>
I'm this guy, I still have to make sure that 7zip doesn't use a temp directory/file when creating an archive.
>>
>>52353758
Yep, it doesn't use a temp file. Never going back. So comfy.

Does it include any improvements in the compression scheme? If it doesn't, then RAR ver 5 is equal to 7z LZMA2 in most cases, better in a few edge cases, all the while being significantly faster.

So compression ratio wise it is
RAR5 >= 7z LZMA2 > RAR
and compression time is
RAR (fastest) > RAR5 > 7Z LZMA2 (slowest)

I just used resourcehacker to edit out the popup reminder.
>>

That one doesn't include the new RAR5 format that came out, like, two years ago, which is every bit as good as 7z but also much faster.

>>52353817
that only works on the 32-bit version. I tried it with the 64-bit version and couldn't get it to work, might have fucked up somehow tho.

Jesus, who gives a shit about performance and compression ratio unless you archive shittons of shit everyday? Pretty much all them are fine.

When using one over the other can save you 50MB+ on each file you download they DO matter.

rar is NOT fine and neither is zip. It's just that rar is less so.
>>
>>52353092
A typo conbined with candlejack cutting off his sentence made it so that you can't understand what he was trying to
>>
>>52355099
Right, but unless you are uploading stuff, you are stuck with whatever format the uploader chose, so there's no point in nitpicking which performs slightly better...
>>
>>52353817
Compression wise old RAR still bests RAR5, and LZMA bests both
Though it seems the WinRAR 5 used in this tests was broken, the results are somewhat odd, though this is the only compression benchmark updated regularly
