SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

1. Athlon64 3200+ 367
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 345

1 Athlon64 3200+ 241
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 232
3. Pentium 4 3.2C 244

I expected the Athlon64 3200+ to score higher than the P4 3.2C in these benchmarks, but that wasn't to be the case. The P4 does quite well against the older AthlonXP 3200+ though.

Content Creation Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Content Content Score Ranking
1. Athlon64 3200+ 55.4
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 52.9
3. Pentium 4 3.2C 51

Business Winstone

1 Athlon64 3200+ 39.6
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 37.3
3. Pentium 4 3.2C 35.2

The Winstone2002 benchmarks are not as kind to the Pentium 4 3.2C. It comes in dead last but I'm not sure if you'd notice any real world performance differences between the processors as 2D apps are usually user limited.
