Business Winstone 2002
Desktop business and multimedia content creation performance

Contrary to SysMark 2004's method of measuring responsiveness, Business Winstone 2002 runs through its task load as fast as possible, procuring a score based on the measured result.  This will also probably be one of the last showings Business Winstone 2002 makes, as the 2004 variant just arrived in our labs (including Content Creation 2004). 

The SK8V scores yet another victory, outpacing the SK8N by about three percent.

Once again, the SK8V takes first place, followed by the SK8N, with the Athlon 64 3200+-based K8VNXP taking third place.  More so here than in any other benchmark, the Athlon 64 FX-51 dominates its Socket 754 cousin.  The processor test reveals a massive 16 percent discrepancy between the two processors.
