PCMark2002 is a completely new, multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark2002 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark2002 also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other benchmarks.



No difference is seen when it comes to CPU and Hard Drive scores, again you do notice the difference in memory bandwidth.





Again when it comes to the processor we see very little difference in performance.

By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.



Here we can see the advantage that Dual Channel memory has given to the overall performance as far as video programs are concerned. Ahead by around 200 marks, it's enough for some people to go out and spend the extra dollars.



For some reason we see the Gigabyte pull ahead here. The tables have turned and the PE board is up by about 150 points. We ran this test several times to figure out why, but we always came up with a similar score.





Again we see the Granite Bay taking the lead over the PE Chipset at 1024x768.
