Benchmarks: Winstone 2004, Winbench 99

Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications in Windows XP.
Business Winstone 2004 runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete these activities to produce its performance scores.

Winstone 2004 Benchmark Results
Business Winstone 2004: Points Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 29.4
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 33.4
Content Creation 2004: Points Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 35.9
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 36.3

In Winstone 2004, the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 is able to score quite a bit higher than the NF3-based Epox 9NDA3+ in the Business Winstone 2004 benchmark. Things were a lot closer in the Content Creation 2004 benchmark, but the Gigabyte nForce4 motherboard was able to squeak out a win here too.

Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 2480
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 2660

Hard drive performance is slightly lower than witnessed with Athlon64 motherboards. Graphics results are quite a bit higher than with the older AGP based systems. Looks like Winbench 99 likes PCI Express very much. We'll see how this translates into 3D performance in a moment.
