zstd's performance curve is entirely within gzip's. For every level of gzip compression, zstd has a level with better compression at the same speed, and a level with the same (or better) compression at a higher speed. Note that this is all for single core; zstd can also run in parallel.

That's really cool, thanks for the info!
