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.

7. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (235/470) 279

It should be pretty obvious to anyone out there now that an i865PE will give you good stock performance regardless of manufacturer.

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.

Content Creation (FSB/Memory) Score Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP (166/333) 47.2
2. Pentium 4 3.0C/AOpen i875P (200/400) 48.6
3. Pentium 4 3.0C/AOpen i865PE (200/400) 47.8

5. Pentium 4 3.0C/Magic-Pro i865PE (200/400) 47.6
6. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (200/400) 47.6
7. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (235/470) 52.9

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1 AthlonXP 3000+/nForce2 IGP (166/333) 33.2
2. Pentium 4 3.0C/AOpen i875P (200/400) 34.7
3. Pentium 4 3.0C/AOpen i865PE (200/400) 33.7
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/Albatron i865PE (200/400) 33.5
5. Pentium 4 3.0C/Magic-Pro i865PE (200/400) 33.2
6. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (200/400) 33.5
7. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (235/470) 37.6

Like SysMark2002 we see that the i865PE motherboards perform all the same at stock speeds. Overclockng does boot overall performance quite a bit.
