Zhuff is a compression software designed for speed (especially decompression speed).
Schematically, it consists of LZ4 & FSE merged together.

Zhuff is several times faster than Zip's fastest mode.

Zhuff also proposes High Compression modes (-c1 and -c2), using MMC match search algorithm, which will trade some CPU cycles for more compression. See benchmark results below.

Note : Zhuff is now obsolete. Its successor is Zstandard, which is open sourced on github.

Compression evaluation :
In-memory benchmark (-b command), using Silesia Corpus
