BAPCO Sysmark 2001 Source:MadOnion / BAPco

SYSmark2001 uses real world applications concurrently as an accurate way to test the system by following patterns that reflect the way real users work. SYSmark2001's workloads accurately represent today's updated business usage model. The benchmark runs at a realistic execution speed, with think times between application interactions, in order to emulate a desktop user's interaction with the operating system and applications.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

BapCo SysMark 2001 Benchmark Results
Shuttle AV45GTR Sysmarks Ranking
1. Internet Content Creation - 100 MHz 169
2 Internet Content Creation - 169 MHz 184
1 Office Productivity - 100 MHz 126
2. Office Productivity - 109 MHz 134

It's common knowledge that the P4 doesn't do well in current office based benchmarks and SysMark simply slaps the P4 around. Overclocking seems to help out a little, but it doesn't really make these scores seem respectable. Intel states that once office applications have optimization for SSE2, things will change, but I think that's a terrible reason personally.

Winstone 2001 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2001 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.

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 ME, 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.

Winstone 2001 Benchmark Results
Shuttle AV45GTR Scores Ranking
1.

Content Creation - 100 MHz

54.7
1a. Content Creation - 109 MHz 59.2
2. Business Winstone - 100 MHz 37.9
2a. Business Winstone - 109 MHz 38.7

Again, those are some of the worst numbers we've seen in the last little while. It's not the fault of the AV45GTR, the P4's performance in anything sub 1.7 GHz is rather lousy because of it's relatively low IPC (Instructions Per Clock).

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

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.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
Shuttle AV45GTR Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 100 MHz 4650
1a. Business Disk - 109 MHz 5270
2. High-End Disk - 100 MHz 12800
2a. High-End Disk - 109 MHz 15100
3. Business Graphics - 100 MHz 493
3a. Business Graphics - 109 MHz 528
4. High-End Graphics - 100 MHz 771
4a. High-End Graphics - 109 MHz 827

The trend continues. We had to use a Maxtor 10GB DiamondMax HDD to benchmark because our reference 30GB IBM died earlier in the week. That's why the disk benchmarks are so low. As for the graphics benchmark, it seems that the VIA P4X266A chipset is still immature. Newer motherboard drivers should fix that. Notice the very nice boost when the system is overclocked.
