« on: May 23, 2011, 06:36:05 PM »
Hi

i did some test about avast v5 and v6 , in the same pc , with the same settings

i don't know if the last v6 built is buggy

but i found avast v5 resident shield more fast then v6

it's me , or do you agree with me ?

i know i read the alwil claims about the new version about speed

thanks

I don't know how you can directly compare the resident shield ?

So I presume you actually mean the on-demand scans ?
With a new installation of avast6 you won't have the benefit of a populated Persistent cache, which would mean a slightly slower scan for the first few scans.

For me avast6 on-demand scans are faster than avast5.

You can compare the relative speed of the two because using Browsers, P2P apps etc you can see how they respond to input via the Net and your computer.  Of course Web content is constantly changing and being updated so you can not test a Browser's relative speed time against the same identical input from the Net unless you are testing the two versions simultaneously on two logical computers.  Having said that if you test the Browsers within a relatively short time period you should get a pretty accurate relative time comparison between the two versions.

Hard to agree without knowing... with what? So, what/how exactly did you measure?

i know i read the alwil claims about the new version about speed

Where do you see any claims about speed?

1)
launching programs like photoshop , bibble 5 , capture one ,acdsee pro 4 , microfoft word or other and using a power full task manager

2)
in the home page :)


maybe avast 6 runs better under w7/vista or xp sp3

i did the test on a fresh install of xp sp2

As DavidR has said it is more than likely due to an unpopulated cache being that it is a fresh install, after running a full scan of the system and populating the cache things should be back to how you think they were before.

Well... that's not really "exactly" :)
What task manager? What were the numbers of were looking for?
What numbers did you get?

Where exactly does it say that avast! 6 is faster than avast! 5?

They walk forward and not backward :)
Of course, protection increase with technology but it takes resources. The balance between protection and performance is the key.

I don't think there were any optimizations of speed. The scanning itself is exactly the same (because the engine - virus database - is identical).
Whether there are some additional operations connected to the improvements in Behavior Shield or AutoSandbox... can be, though it's hard to say what effect it might have. So avast! 6 resident protection probably won't be faster... and yes, it's possible that it might be a bit slowed; that comes with the protection. (Just as well as the general scanning gets slightly slower in time, due to virus database growing - no matter what program version you have).

Even if we take the marketing talk seriously ;D - that doesn't compare the speed of avast! 5 and 6 in any way.

Come on, igor.
V6 is 0.3587 ms faster than v5, didn't you notice it..? ;D

I think the latest Avast waaaay better than old version 5 and 6.

In my machine the latest Avast :
1. Less impacting my boot time from cold shutdown.
2. Scan faster (I can notice the difference)
3. Never crash unlike the earlier version 5 and 6.
4. Using less resource than before.
