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.
In SysMark2002's Office Productivity portion of the
benchmark everything is much closer. The P4/DDR solutions perform on par with
the AMD/DDR motherboard results shown in red.
