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.

 

 

 

Very little difference between EPoX and the Chaintech Apogee. Chaintech just falls behind by 1 Sysmark in Business but makes that 1 up in Content Creation

 

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 Apogee takes the lead over EPoX and is not far behind Soyo here. Soyo has proven itself to be the fastest board in the KT333 range we have seen, so we expect Chaintech to be able to hit through to this level to get top award.
