They've had over a year to optimise the engine, and they didn't
completely rewrite it, what did you expect?

'stat fps' in the console, exactly the same as ut2003. works for me.

I did some poking, looks like, for the time being, you cannot.
I recreated the bits from ut2003 that does a flyby, and tried it on
the flyby didn't occur, but the actual benchmarking DID, so i just moved
around the map (you can fly around like in spectator mode) for 77
seconds before it quit and wrote benchmarking results.
No idea how to get it to do an automated flyby (even creating the
flybyexec.txt file didn't do the trick)
