There is a similar situation under SYSMark 2000, with the 600E coming out on top of the Celeron 600 by about 23% which is, once again, due to the 100MHz bus speed advantage.

In this particular test, an older Pentium III 550 on our VIA 133A platform came out with a score of 112, faster than even the Celeron 600 on a BX setup. If you happen to own an older Pentium III and are looking for an upgrade, the Celeron isn't the way to go.
