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

1. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 325
2. Asus A7N8X - 166/333 322
3. Asus A7N8X - 187/374 354

2. Asus A7N8X - 166/333 195

Here we see that the A7N8X and the 8RDA+ are neck and neck in terms of stock performance.
