AVAST, NOD32 etc - any benchmarked comparisons

  WhiteViper 20:25 08 Dec 2005

I know the subject of "Which AV program is the best" has been done so many times on this forum, with folks offering their opinion as to which they think is best. I'm an Avast user, but I'm considering paying for NOD32 based on its excellent reviews on this site.

But rather than relying simply on opinion, I wondered if there were any 'scientific' tests carried out to benchmark actual performance of the various AV products. I think this would be great way for everyone to look at the results and make a decision based on the data.

Anyone aware of any such testing, and if so where the results can be viewed?

This website click here does a lot of independent AV research, comparisons, etc. You'll need to click on their links as posted URLs have 'session IDs' that expire after a while. The AV comparison links I'd bookmarked many months ago don't work anymore. G
