Here are some of my models for data compression research compared against popular compressors gzip and 7-zip. Click on the names to download them as command-line tools. Note that none of these compressors are compatible with the others. All of these compressors are experimental. RH5 and its variants are designed for high speed and modest memory usage, and are meant to be practical solid multi-file archivers.
These benchmarks are with enwik8, a 100 MB text-file from the English-language Wikipedia. More information and a benchmark of some of my compressors (these and others) can be found on the Large Text Compression Benchmark.
