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
SL-K8AN-RL does pretty well for itself here in SysMark2002. It beats out the MSI
K8T Neo and Albatron K8X800 Pro II which is pretty impressive!
| Winstone 2002
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.
Soltek SL-K8AN-RL does very well for itself in the Winstone 2002 benchmarks.
Overclocking boosts the scores a bit more then usual because we're running the
memory in sync with the motherboard clock speed.
