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.

1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 325
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 319
3. K7N-Ultra S - 166/333 326
4. K7N-Ultra S - 211/422 335

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 166/333 198

3. K7N-Ultra S - 166/333 199
4. K7N-Ultra S - 211/422 203

Stock performance of the K7N-Ultra S is very good as it's just as fast as the Epox 8RGA+. Overclocking does not do much in terms of performance.

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 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.

2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 32.6
3. K7N-Ultra S - 166/333 33.6

2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 45.1
3. K7N-Ultra S - 166/333 47.6
4. K7N-Ultra S - 211/422

48.5

Here we see that the K7N-Ultra S at stock speeds is just as fast as the Epox 8RGA+. Overclocking lowers performance because of the lower overall CPU speed in Business Winstone 2002.
