Ziff Davis' Winstones 2004

Business &Content Creation Winstones
Real-World Application Performance

Synthetic benchmarks only tell part of the performance story, so we took the Skyhawk IMC6375 to task in some "real world" scenarios as well.  For our first set of real world tests, we did some benchmarking with Ziff Davis' Business Winstone 2004 suite, followed by the more demanding Content Creation Winstone 2004 suite

       The PC Magazine Business Winstone 2004 test utilizes the following applications in its benchmark:

  • Microsoft Access 2002
  • Microsoft Excel 2002
  • Microsoft FrontPage 2002
  • Microsoft Outlook 2002
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2002
  • Microsoft Project 2002
  • Microsoft Word 2002
  • Norton Antivirus Professional Edition 2003
  • WinZip 8.1

The PC Magazine Content Creation Winstone 2004 test utilizes the following applications in its benchmark:

  • Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1
  • Adobe Premiere 6.50
  • Macromedia Director MX 9.0
  • Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 6.1
  • Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 Version
  • NewTek's LightWave 3D 7.5b
  • Steinberg WaveLab 4.0f

The CPU and memory differences were expressed directly in the Winstones, both of them won by the Skyhawk IMC6375.  In Business Winstone 2004, the IMC6375 scored .6 points better than the other two systems, coming out to about a three percent difference in that benchmark.  The performance delta was a bit smaller in the Content Creation Winstone, where only .2 points separated the Skyhawk from the Epox box.  This difference came out to less than one percent, essentially the same output between the systems.
