MSI K7N2-L nForce2 Motherboard Review

MSI K7N2-L nForce2 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: nVIDIA's original nForce chipset had lots of potential and made a lot of promises, but in the end it fizzled out big time.

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. AD77 Infinity - 166/333 266
2. K7N2-L - 166/400 274
3. K7N2-L - 175/350 295

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. AD77 Infinity - 166/333 171
2. K7N2-L - 166/400 176
3. K7N2-L - 175/350 183

SysMark 2002 seems to favor the K7N2 quite a bit more then the KT400 based motherboard. In the Office Productivity portion of the benchmark the performance is much closer.
