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.
Thanks for the 2. link you posted.
This made me aware of a few things I were not aware of before.
