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.

The Internet portion of SysMark2002 doesn't take advantage of the Athlon64's SSE2 instruction set that's why it does relatively poorly in that part of the benchmark. The MSI K8T Neo and the Albatron K8X800 Pro II perform on par with each other.

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.

Business Winstone

1 P4 3.2C/Intel D875PBZ (200/400) 35.2
2. AXP 3200+/Albatron KX18DProII (200/400) 37.3
3. A64 3200+/MSI K8T Neo (200/400) 39.6
4. A64 3200+/Albatron K8X800ProII (200/400) 39.3
5. A64 3200+/Albatron K8X800ProII (245/407) 41.3

The Winstone 2002 benchmarks seem to like the Athlon64 3200+/K8T800 combo quite a bit! It's no surprise, but the Albatron K8X800 Pro II is again about the same speed as the MSI board.
