Content Creation and Business Winstone 2001

The content creation tests from this benchmark, such as the Adobe programs, give the Tyan Tiger MPX a decent 7% gain over the Abit KT266A motherboard. These real-world programs are utilizing the multi-threaded capability of a dual-processor system.
However, on the office tests, we are seeing very little improvement in the MPX system. By less than 1% the Tyan board pulls ahead probably due mostly to the ability for the motherboard to balance the load under Windows, and not due to the office programs that are being tested.
This is my first time including this test in the benchmark suite. It too, just as its 2001 predecessor, includes many multi-threaded applications from Macromedia and some audio editing programs. The difference here comes out to about 8% in favor of the Tyan Tiger MPX.
