    I'm using BetterZip since I met with Mac. It is all OK with good looking GUI ect.

    But it isn't using all of processor and RAM so that's why unarchiving becomes slow.

    I need a Unarchiver that will use all of processor and RAM to unarchive faster.

    That's not how it works. Expanding is limited by the speed of your hard drive (in most cases).

    I only tried free programs so far. Keka was great until it couldn't open a file. Now I use Hamster Free Archiver and never had a problem with an archive.

    I use RarX or something like that on my Macs. Not at my machine now to look.
