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.

Internet Content (FSB/Memory) Sysmarks Ranking
1. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 221
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 238

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1 KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 138
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 150

Even though there is the SysMark2002 "scandal" going around we see that the KT4 Ultra still does pretty well.

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. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 79.4
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 83.7

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1 KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 51.2
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 56.1

The Winstone benchmarks show a good improvement once the system is boosted up to 185/370 MHz.
