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. 8RGA+ - 200/400 343
2. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 330
3. GA-7VT600 - 215/430 347

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 200/400 210
2. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 206
3. GA-7VT600 - 215/430 215

At stock speeds the VIA KT600 is slightly slower than the Epox 8RGA+. That's pretty good considering VIA's KT400/KT400A took a beating here.

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 Content (FSB/Memory) Score Ranking
1. 8RGA+ - 200/400 36.6
2. GA-7VT600 - 200/400

36.5

3. GA-7VT600 - 215/430 36.9

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 200/400 50.4
2. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 49.4
3. GA-7VT600 - 215/430 50.7

The Winbench based benchmarks are much closer, here the two motherboards virtually perform the same at stock speeds!
