There exist some comparisons for the C++ implementations
(zlib's DEFLATE being a variation of lz77):
The high compression variant of lz4 basically like gzip with
9x faster decompression. That makes it well suited for use
cases where you compress once, decompress often and I/O
sequential reads are fast e.g. 200 MB/s or the program does
other computations meanwhile and one doesn't want
decompression to use a lot of CPU time.
