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.
The XFX 7600GT ends up at the bottom of the pile in each test here, but puts up a good showing at 1600×1200 with AA on. It’s plain to see that the X1800XL and GTO are much better at HDR than the 7600GT. The X1800’s 256-bit bus shows its power here.
