12.5 x 133 = 1.66 ghz (t-bred)
13 x 133 = 1.73 ghz (t-bred)

since the athlonxp2100+ was only able to hit 1.76 ghz, we simply used the athlonxp 2000+ (t-bred) for the overclocking benchmarking because it would cover the same bases in terms of performance. the athlonxp 2100+ was benchmarked at stock (1.73ghz) speeds.

SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

BapCo SysMark 2002 Benchmark Results
Internet Content Sysmarks Ranking
1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 226
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 226
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 231
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 240

Office Productivity

1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 162
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 162
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 165
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 173

It's not surprising to see that the T-Bred performs on par with the Palomino. Overclocking brings a nice performance boost.

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
Content Content Score Ranking
1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 85.9
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 86.3
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 89.4
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 93.6

Business Winstone

1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 62.7
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 61.9
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 64.5
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 71.8

The two Winstone benchmarks are using older software and we see that the T-Bred's perform on par with their Palomino counterparts.
