* - The Pentium 4 2.8 GHz uses a 133 MHz FSB and was run on an i845PE and E7205 motherboard for performance reference.

** - HyperThreading was enabled and running for all the tests because it is enabled by default in the BIOS.

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 Sysmarks Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP 375
2. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/i845PE 361
3. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/E7205 372
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/i865PE 425

Office Productivity

1 AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP 180
2. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/i845PE 191
3. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/E7205 187
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/i865PE 218

There's no doubt which system is fastest in SysMark2002! The combination of a Pentium 4 3.0C and the AOpen AX4SPE is extremely fast in office applications!

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.

Winstone 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Creation Score Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP 47.2
2. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/i845PE 45.1
3. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/E7205 45.5
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/i865PE 47.8

Business Winstone

1 AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP 33.2
2. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/i845PE 29.7
3. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz/E7205 31.4
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/i865PE 33.7

In Content Creation we see about a 5-6% performance increase due to the higher clock speed of the processor and the higher FSB thanks to the AOpen AX4SPE Max. With Business Winstone, we get over a 10% increase over the previous mainstream chipset the i845PE!
