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.

BapCo SysMark 2002 Benchmark Results
Internet Content (FSB/Memory) Sysmarks Ranking
1. 845PE Max2 - 133/333 349
2. PX845E Silver - 133/266 353
3. 4SDA5+ - 133/400 354
4. 4SDA5+ - 160/320 413

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

3. 4SDA5+ - 133/400 163
4. 4SDA5+ - 160/320 185

At stock, the 4SDA5+ performs on par with the MSI 845PE Max2. Overclock it and it leads the pack by a lot!

Winstone 2002 Source: Zdnet

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.

Winstone 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Content Score Ranking
1. 845PE Max2 - 133/333 36.7
2. PX845E Silver - 133/266 34.7
3. 4SDA5+ - 133/400 35.8
4. 4SDA5+ - 160/320 39.5

Business Winstone

1 845PE Max2 - 133/333 23.9
2. PX845E Silver - 133/266 26.8
3. 4SDA5+ - 133/400 27.4
4. 4SDA5+ - 160/320 29.3

As we can see from the Winstone benchmarks, the 4SDA5+ is just as fast as the i845E/PE based motherboards.
