These results show how the difference between two different versions of the same benchmark can make such a difference. In the CC Winstone 2001, we see the AD73 being beaten by the KT333 motherboards buty still overpowering the Abit KR7A motherboard. However, the 8% loss that the DFI board showed in that version is lessened to 3% in the 2002 version and all of the systems (with the exception again of the Intel one) are very close. The Sysmark 2001 software shows a similar story here as well.
The business tests that are used in these two benchmarks show the KT333 chipset based motherboards only to be very slightly faster in the Office suites than the KT266A motherboards like the DFI AD73 and the Abit KR7A.
