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
off pretty well for the Gigabyte K8NNXP even though HyperTransport on the nForce3
150 runs slightly slower than on the VIA K8T800.
| Winstone 2002
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.
the Gigabyte K8NNXP performs very well on par with the other Athlon64
motherboards we've tested from Epox, Albatron, and MSI.
