Battling Brothers: Celeron vs. Pentium 4

3DMark 2001 SE

The 3DMark 2001 is a 3D graphics benchmark that includes both the processor and the graphics card in its measurements. We discovered that the Pentium 4 is a lot more speedy when run together with the test graphics card, a GeForce 3 with 64 MB DDR RAM. Upgrading to a GeForce 4 model (not an MX version, however) would really give a boost to the Celeron system. Gaming enthusiasts should check out which costs less - a Pentium 4 instead of the Celeron, or a GeForce 4 model instead of the GeForce 3 we used.

Direct3D - Unreal Tournament

Unreal Tournament is a performance monster. The game runs faster with a Pentium 4 than with a Celeron operating at the same clock speed.
