MSI K7N2-L nForce2 Motherboard Review
MSI K7N2-L nForce2 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: nVIDIA's original nForce chipset had lots of potential and made a lot of promises, but in the end it fizzled out big time.

Benchmarks: Winstone 2002, Winbench 99

Winstone 2002 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it 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.

BapCo SysMark 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Content (FSB/Memory) Score Ranking
1. AD77 Infinity - 166/333 31
2. K7N2-L - 166/400 31
3. K7N2-L - 175/350 32.4

Business Winstone (FSB/Memory)

1. AD77 Infinity - 166/333 43
2. K7N2-L - 166/400 45.1
3. K7N2-L - 175/350 48.1

Performance difference in Content Creation 2002 is much closer, but Business Winstone says the same thing SysMark does.

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
MSI K7N2-L Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 166/400 7400
1a. Business Disk - 175/350 7590
2. High-End Disk - 166/400 24700
2a. High-End Disk - 175/350 25500
3. Business Graphics - 166/400 1080
3a. Business Graphics - 175/350 1130
4. High-End Graphics - 166/400 1940
4a. High-End Graphics - 175/350 2060

Usually the Disk portion of the benchmark suffers when overclocked, but in the case of the K7N2-L this is not the case. Those are some fine Winbench scores overall!
