WinBench 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.

Even though Intel loyalists would say Winbench99 is too
old to take advantage of the enhancements made to the Pentium 4, I think this benchmark has more merit then some
of the newer ones. Most office environments don't use the latest software, it's just not economical to upgrade
your office suite every time Microsoft releases a new one. There is a good increase
in performance with the small overclock we were able to achieve.
Business Winstone is a system-level, application-based
benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's
Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98 SE, Windows NT 4.0 (SP6 or
later), Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP which 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.

keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those applications.
Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call "hot spots,"
periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where you're likely
to see an hourglass or a progress bar.
Content Creation and Business Winstone verify the
same things SysMark2001 and Winbench99 say. Office benchmarking is not
the P4's forte. The numbers taken from these benchmarks are in fact lower then
a P3 1 GHz setup!
