Here are some 7-Zip compression results again...

While the Intel Core i7 3960X delivered the best overall 7-Zip performance, the Core i7 3770K clearly won when it came to delivering the best performance-per-Watt. Unlike the C-Ray results where the FX-8150 did favorable, now the Ivy Bridge processor had about twice the performance-per-Watt of the FX-8150 Eight Core processor. The performance-per-Watt of the i7-3770K was 16% better than the i7-3960X and an incredible 60% better than the i5-2500K. The AMD A8-3870K Fusion actually did the worst when it came to the power efficiency in this benchmark.

The CPU temperature of the i7-3770K under the 7-Zip load rose to 69°C on the reference cooler while the i5-2500K with the same cooler came in at a comparable 65°C. The Intel Core i3 2120 with the same Intel HSF was at 57°C during this load and the i5-2400S at 59°C.
