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.

 

 

 

Sysmark shows a definite improvement over the 8K3A+. While not able to take top spot, it does come in very close to being the best.

 

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.

Winstone also shows a good improvement over its predecessor. Now we have the system applications out of the way, it is time to start on the 3D system.
