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. MSI K7N2-L - 166/400 274
2. FIC AU11 - 166/333 276
3. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 276
4. Epox 8RDA+ - 184/368 316

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. MSI K7N2-L - 166/400 176
2. FIC AU11 - 166/333 189
3. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 189
4. Epox 8RDA+ - 184/368 204

Here we see that the FIC AU11 and the Epox 8RDA+ perform the same and the MSI K7N2-L lags behind just a tad (because the memory is not running in sync with the FSB).
