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. KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 218
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 232

1 KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 152
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 167

Here we can see that the KT3 Ultra2 when teamed up with an AthlonXP 2000+ is a pretty powerful combination.

Winstone 2001 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2001 keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those applications. Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call "hot spots," periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where you're likely to see an hourglass or a progress bar.

Business Winstone is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98 ME, Windows NT 4.0 (SP6 or later), Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP which 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.

Winstone 2001 Benchmark Results
Content Creation (FSB/Memory) Scores Ranking
1. KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 74
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 79.5

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1 KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 50.2
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 56.3

Even when using old testing software like the Winstone 2001 based benchmarks, the KT3 Ultra2 still can handle it very well.
