SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather than 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. KX18D Pro II - 200/400 343
3. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 330
4. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 200/400 340
5. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 246/492 372

Office Productivity (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 200/400 210
2. KX18D Pro II - 200/400 212
3. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 206
4. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 200/400 215
5. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 246/492 234

At stock speeds the DFI LANParty is just as fast as the Albatron KX18D Pro II and Epox 8RGA+ and that is very good considering those boards are among the fastest nForce2 motherboards available. Overclocked and nothing can keep up with the DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B.

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. KX18D Pro II - 200/400

37.6

3. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 36.5
4. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 200/400 36.9
5. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 246/492 43.5

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1. 8RGA+ - 200/400 50.4
2. KX18D Pro II - 200/400 52.5
3. GA-7VT600 - 200/400 49.4
4. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 200/400 51.7
5. LANParty NF2 Ultra B - 246/492 55.6

Again at stock speeds the DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B motherboard performs as fast as its nForce2 brethren. Hopefully people can see that there are real benefits due to raising the FSB even if you leave your processor at stock speeds.
