Winstone Performance

For this benchmark, Winstone 99 and Content Creation Winstone 2000 have been used to test the overall performance of the test bed setup. Winstone 99 (Business Winstone 99) v1.2 is used to test the overall business performance of the computer system by using applications such as MS Office 97, Lotus Smartsuite 97, etc. Content Creation Winstone 2000 is a system level, application based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows based Internet content creation applications. The test focuses on top selling Internet content creation applications.

Each test was run 3 times with the result being the average value of the 3 test runs. Higher numbers indicate better performance.

Content Creation Winstone 2000 performance of the tested board is slightly higher than that of the DFI CA64 EC (Apollo 133A & 686B) and a bit slower than a BX based board made by Soyo. The 7VMA also lags behind the DFI CS65 SC since the latter was tested with a 100MHz memory bus. As this is an early sample, we do believe that the final revision will correct the HCLK + 33MHz bug that we have experienced.

In this round of testing, we see the 7VMA running in last albeit by a very small margin. These graphs have a tendency to exaggerate the results, don't they? : )
