Serious Sam 2
Ok, let's get Serious! This game offers HDR, tons of impressive scenery and enough enemies to make your trigger finger tired. We've provided results below with HDR and no AA, and results with standard Anti-Aliasing without HDR. HDR is the next big thing for games coming out today and on the horizon. Although the ATI X1000 series support the use of Anti-Aliasing with HDR enabled in Serious Sam 2, the Nvidia 7000 series does not. No HDR+AA results were included in the review for this reason.
In Serious Sam 2 the 7900GTX is quite an improvement over the old 7800GTX 512. With standard rendering and Anti-Aliasing the new Nvidia part nearly takes the down the X1900XTX at the highest resolution. However, once HDR is enabled all three of the ATI cards are ahead of the pair from Nvidia.
One problem that we have seen in the past is poor performance by the X1800 line of cards in Serious Sam 2. It seems that the problem has been sorted out and the X1800XT performs very well, showing up even the 7900GTX in 4 of the 6 tests.
