Celeron with 2.0 GHz in the test: Does a Pentium 4 competitor overclock to 3.0 GHz?

Comanche 4

  • Comanche 4 is a fairly new game, which makes excessive use of the pixel shaders of modern graphics cards to display the detailed landscape , as well as the beautifully animated water and reflective surfaces. At an average of 30 fps, the polygon throughput is around 6 million per second. In our test, more than 10 million polygons per second could be displayed, which is of course due to the strong support of the graphics card by the processor.

Also the performance ungen in Comanche 4 cannot compete with the real Pentium 4 or the slowest Athlons.

Quake 3 Arena 1.31

  • Quake3Arena and programs based on this engine are considered to be the most memory-dependent Games at all. In addition to the latency times, the pure bandwidth plays a decisive role, which is why Rambus usually takes the lead with its up to 4.2 GB/s. A useful tool that makes benchmarking with this software much easier is the Q3Bench . Predefined configs as well as the desired resolutions and levels of detail can be selected here. The hard-working helper also records the results.

In Quake 3, the performance of the Celeron can be compared with the flyby values ​​of Unreal Tournament 2003 because the processor is not responsible for the opponent here. Even if the Celeron is badly behind, more than 180fps should be enough for playing.
