Under the ATI 2.5.1 driver I was getting ~7FPS for the low rating and
about 20 for the average.  The new drivers makes certain high-detail
levels like IronDeity go from totally unplayable ~4FPS under 2.5.1, to
acceptable 20s frame rates under 2.9.6.

The Antalus level was one of the standard levels that I had issues with
poor FPS in areas so what I used to compare performance on. I had not
intended on this being an exhaustive benchmark comparing the performance
of the Windows Ut2003 vs. the Linux UT2003, but just the OpenGL video

A lower end system would probably have a wider difference than what my
system does, and yes botmatches would make a big difference also since
they are cpu intensive..
