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 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 our single card HDR tests the X1650XT is just barely faster than the 7600 GT but not enough to say one is really faster than the other.
Running in CrossFire the pair of X1650XT cards were faster across the board than 7600 GS SLI and at the highest resolution faster than 7900 GT SLI!
