Benchmarks: PCMark2002, 3DMark2001SE

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. K7N2-L - 166/400 6573
2. K7N2G-ILSR - 166/333 6619
3. K7N2G-ILSR - 175/350 6901

Memory

1. K7N2-L - 166/400 5020
2. K7N2G-ILSR - 166/333 4639
3. K7N2G-ILSR - 175/350 4812

With both boards running at stock speed, it's no surprise the systems score about the same. Because the K7N2G-ILSR is sharing the memory bandwidth with the integrated GeForce4 MX, the memory score is a tad lower. Not by much though as you can see!

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. K7N2-L - 166/400 15073
2. K7N2G-ILSR - 166/333 4668
3. K7N2G-ILSR - 175/350 4740

Please keep in mind when viewing the benchmark, for comparison's sake we ran the K7N2G-ILSR using the integrated GeForce4 MX. Performance is not great, but for gaming it's much better then the other integrated options out there. For day to day web and office work the nForce2 IGP is a great way for IT departments to save some money when building systems.
