7-Zip Compressing

7-Zip Decompressing

Architectural enhancements, most notably the larger slab of directly accessible L3 cache on each CCX, result in strong performance for Zen 3 in 7-Zip compression. The Ryzen 9 5950X is chart-topping with a 13% performance uplift over the Ryzen 9 3950X.

Decompression performance shows a similar trend, but it is more core count biased. The 5950X shows a 16% performance uplift over the stock 3950X. Overclocking the Zen 3 16 core even via PBO delivers sizable performance increases that heavy decompression users will respect.
