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. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 372
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 364
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 361
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 411

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1 GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 187
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 191
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 191
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 199

Stock performance of the IT7 MAX2 Rev2 is very good, it's on par with the Albatron PX845PEV-800. Overclocking does give a healthy boost to overall performance.

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.

Winstone 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Creation (FSB/Memory) Score Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 40.9
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 45.3
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 45.1
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 47.5

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1 GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 31.4
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 30.1
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 29.7
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 31.2

I'm not sure why the GNB MAX scores low in Content Creation, it should be faster then both i845PE boards. Again stock speeds show the IT7 MAX2 Rev2 is the same speed as the Albatron PX845PEV-800.
