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.
Performance differences in the Winstone 2002 benchmarks are
larger than in SYSmark2004, but the message is the same, at stock the MSI K8N
Neo is fastest.
99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's
graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's
tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows
NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.
original nForce3-150 performed quite well in Winbench, and the NF3-350 follows
suite. Performance in HDD and graphics is good overall.
