Real-World System Productivity


SysMark 2002


SysMark2002 incorporates the following Internet Content Creation and Office Productivity applications:


Office Productivity: Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Excel 2002, Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, Microsoft Outlook 2002, Microsoft Access 2002, Netscape Communicator 6.0, Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred v.5, WinZip 8.0, and McAfee Virus Scan 5.13.


Internet Content Creation: Adobe Photoshop 6.01, Adobe Premiere 6.0, Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 7.1, Macromedia Dreamweaver 4, and Macromedia Flash 5.




In our business productivity test suite, we don't see a huge difference between the chipsets, even when DDR-400 is used. When pushed to do high quality image rendering, however, the SiS 648 with DDR-400 smokes the rest.


Winstone 2001


Business Winstone tests your computer's word processing, spreadsheet and presentation application ability using Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Both Content Creation and Business Winstone 2001 give you great examples of real-world performance.


Content Creation tests your computer's ability to create and manipulate images, webpages etc using real world programs such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver, then gives you an overall score.




The same trend is shown in Winstone as in SysMark, very little between the entire chipsets in business but when asked for high quality 3D image rendering, DDR-400 gives the SiS 648 the edge.
