Benchmarks - SYSmark 2000 - Windows 98 SE

I chose to share these results with you, even though the SYSmark is not a useful performance indicator any more. With business applications, the system is waiting for user inputs most of the time, making the maximum system performance quite uninteresting.

Still it's interesting to see that there are obvious differences among the AMD760 boards.
