Business Winstone 2001
Business Winstone has been around forever, and this latest version still does a decent job showing us how a system performs in common office applications.
Did I mention that we had some very close results? The Northwood at 2.2GHz is fastest all around, but only when paired with RDRAM. Of the DDR-equipped systems, the Athlon XP 2000+ is fastestbut just barely.
Content Creation Winstone 2001
Business Winstone's companion test is a little more intensive. It measures performance in applications like audio editing, page design, and image processing.
Here the Athlon XP takes a decisive lead. Northwood is just a tick faster than Willamette, though.
