    DFI LanParty UT NF3 250GB - WinRAR, LAME


    (Page 13 of 14 )

    WinRAR

    Data compression is done regularly in both home and business environments to create backups and keep work organized, secure, and transportable. For this test, we archived an 82 MB photo collection to a .rar folder, and timed how long it took. The P4 floundered here, with the Soyo, Chaintech and AOpen boards crowding together for the best time. The LanParty is off the pace set by those three. Why? I'm ready to lay this at the feet of the onboard SATA RAID controller. It just seems to eat a few more CPU cycles than the Silicon Image and VIA controllers used in the other boards, and is the only apparent difference between the setups.

    LAME

    The last of the media-oriented tests is an MP3 conversion of The Tragically Hip - Phantom Power album using the DBPoweramp frontend. The disc was first ripped to WAV format on the HD, so that the CD drive wouldn't be the limiting factor. In addition, more error correction from beat up discs is possible with this method. Thanks to its "cheating" clock speed, the CK8 still achieves this tests best score, but is now tied with the DFI LanParty. So much for my theory on RAID controllers, as these files are larger than the photo collection.
