Hey guys,
It works, Amount of time required for compression is low. [ using Plzip ]

So I guess one will have to either use a very powerful processor or
will have to choose between compression ratio or time.
Am I right?

You can obtain both high compression ratio and fast compression speed, but only on large enough files. The home page of plzip gives a hint:

"Note that the number of usable threads is limited by file size; on files larger than a few GB plzip can use hundreds of processors, but on files of only a few MB plzip is no faster than lzip."

And the manual page explains the details:
