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.

It's nice to see that HDD performance between all nForce4 motherboards is the same. Graphics numbers seem a bit on the low side in this test, but we'll wait for the 3D benchmarks before we start to judge things.
