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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
