    Internal benchmark shows great speed and uses all cpu cores
    -> perfect :-)

    When decompressing a "normal" .zip file only 1 core seem to be uses.
    is this ok? Can it be changed?

    Which of 7zips actions are multi-threaded like the internal benchmark?

    version: windows 9.32 alpha and some versions before with same behaviour...

    Many thanks for clarifying this!!

    7-Zip can use multithreading during compression.
    ZIP decompression is fast enough, if deflate method is used.

    many thanks for your answer!
    "if deflate method is used" - how does this work? do I have to activate it?
