PeaZip benchmarks page is updated with Brotli and Zstandard faster-than-Deflate compression algorithms introduced in release 7.1.0: https://peazip.org/peazip-compression-benchmark.html

Brotli and Zstandard, two very fast data compression algorithms developed by Google and Facebook respectively, outperform fastest ZIP/Deflate implementations available on mainstream file archiver utilities, both for compression and extraction speed, providing a comparable compression ratio at default compression level.

Future tests will analyze the flexibility of Brotli and Zstandard algorithms in terms of speed / compression ratio trade-off with lower and higher compression settings.
