In the Business Winstone test, all the boards perform close to the same. The two processors on the Tyan and MSI board are not taken advantage due to the lack of SMP-capable software in the test suite. In the Content Creation and CC 2002 tests, we see the other picture where the dual-Athlons can separate from the single Athlons by as much 8% in the productivity test.
On the Sysmark tests, the Internet Content Creation test shows a similar increase in speed by utilization of the SMP programs. However, the regular business apps actually show a decrease in speed.
