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.

2. 845PE Max2 - 165/330 187

At stock speeds, the MSI 845PE Max2 performs very well and overclocking really boosts performance quite a bit!

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.

Business Winstone

1. 845PE Max2 - 133/333 23.9
2. 845PE Max2 - 165/330 28.6

At stock speeds, the MSI 845PE Max2 performs on par with what we would expect and overclocking brings a healthy performance boost.
