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.

5. A64 3200+/Gigabyte K8NNXP (227/377) 265

Things start off pretty well for the Gigabyte K8NNXP even though HyperTransport on the nForce3 150 runs slightly slower than on the VIA K8T800.

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.

2. A64 3200+/Albatron K8X800 (200/400) 39.3
3. A64 3200+/Epox 8HDA3+ (200/400) 39

5. A64 3200+/Gigabyte K8NNXP (227/377) 44.5

Again, the Gigabyte K8NNXP performs very well on par with the other Athlon64 motherboards we've tested from Epox, Albatron, and MSI.
