Benchmarks: Winstone 2002, Winbench 99

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.

3. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 45.4
4. Epox 8RDA+ - 184/368 50

With the two Winstone 2002 benchmarks we see that the performance of all boards is much closer.

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
Epox 8RDA+ Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 166/333 7230
1a. Business Disk - 184/368 7100
2. High-End Disk - 166/333 25400
2a. High-End Disk - 184/368 23800
3. Business Graphics - 166/333 1050
3a. Business Graphics - 184/368 1130
4. High-End Graphics - 166/333 1950
4a. High-End Graphics - 184/368 2170

It's no surprise that the HDD performance degrades when overclocked. The graphics portion of Winbench 99 gets a nice boost from overclocking.
