Real World System Benchamrks

 

Sysmark 2002

 

SysMark 2002 is as simulated system performance benchmark using real installed applications, thus making it a real word benchmark

 

SysMark 2002 incorporates the following Internet Content Creation and Office Productivity applications:

 

Office Productivity includes 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 Generation includes Adobe Photoshop 6.01, Adobe Premiere 6.0, Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 7.1, Macromedia Dreamweaver 4, and Macromedia Flash 5.

 

Sysmark Business Productivity

 

 

Sysmark Internet Content Creation

 

 

We see in Sysmark the extra memory bandwidth doesn't play a super part, both chipsets perform on par.

 

Business Winstone

 

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.

 

 

Again, no great performance gap, as expected, simple business applications don't need a lot of resources.

 

Winstone Content Creation

 

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.

 

 

In the Content Creation of Winstone we see a bit of a change. Winstone's content creation software is more memory dependant the Sysmarks and give a bit more of an idea that SiS 645DX does have the goods.
