Intel Celeron D: New, Improved & Exceeds Expectationsby Derek Wilson on June 24, 2004 3:01 AM EST

Unreal Tournament 2003 BenchmarkJust to keep the DX8 performance page a little cleaner, we decided to give UT2K3 its own page. There is still a good bit of DX7 in UT2K3 code as well, so it's not completely unprecedented.
Anyway, Under the flyby (which is traditionally GPU limited with faster processors), we see the Celeron 335 once again putting in numbers at the top of the heap. The Athlon XP and Celeron D processors are fairly well matched here.
But looking at the Botmatch benchmark numbers tells a different story. We see the Athlon processors sitting well above the Celeron Ds. Of course, the Prescott core processors still hold their own and maintain a position well above the Northwood Celerons. The 20x100 Celeron D has a 14% performance advantage over the 2.0GHz Celeron in Botmatch.
Since Botmatch is more like actual game play, we would expect that the Athlon processors would perform better when actually playing UT2K3.
