    Part 2 of our Broadwell vs. Haswell series brings us to more real-life performance increases. This time, we’re looking at compression, and the WinRAR benchmark. Now, as a reminder, the table below is to give you an overview of the transition to the 5th Generation Broadwell chips, the i7-5000 series, and which CPU replaces which.


    Just like with last week’s Cinebench test, the WinRAR benchmark supports multi-threading, and will therefore be using all 8 threads of both our i7-4720HQ as well as the i7-5700HQ.


    Just like last time, we put both systems, both with dual-channel RAM at the same frequencies and timings through their paces in three runs. The result is clear to see, with the Broadwell CPU edging ahead with a reasonable margin, adding another comfortable win over Haswell in real-life performance.
