Benchmarks: Winstone 2002, Winbench 99

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.

As you can see, Winstone 2002 benchmarks all the systems pretty close. It's interesting to see that once overclocked, the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum system performs slower than at stock speeds. This is due to the lower overall CPU speed and memory bandwidth.

HDD performance from the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum is excellent, but we see here that stock performance is better than when the system is overclocked.
