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.

ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ Socket 754 31.3

Both Winstone 2004 tests show slightly slower performance from the ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR. Again the motherboard does quite well against the competition when using an equivalent processor.

Well! These Hard drive scores are quite impressive; it looks like ALi did good work in this area. In both Business disk and high end disk tests, the ALi M1689 based ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR comes out ahead by a lot! The motherboard also scored right in the middle
