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 X1950 Pro is looking great as it’s able to beat out the 7900 GT and 7900 GS by comfortable margins. As the resolution scales up it ends up ever so slightly faster than the 7950 GT!
Running in CrossFire it’s no contest, the pair of X1950 Pro cards were faster across the board than 7900 GT SLI.
