Ok, let’s get Serious! This game offers HDR, tons of impressive scenery and enough enemies to make your mouse hand tired. All results provided below are with HDR on, and for X1800 and X1900 we’ve decided to include the results with HDR+AA. HDR is the next big thing for games coming out today and on the horizon. The Nvidia 7800GTX 512 does not support the use of Anti-Aliasing with HDR enabled in Serious Sam 2.
Dual video card results (in color) are included with the single cards (in standard blue).
As you can see ATI has really pulled off great performance with the new X1900XT and XTX. There is no comparison between the X1800XT and X1900XT, in fact we didn’t even include most of the X1800 results because it wasn’t playable. Likewise the single 7800GTX 512 simply can’t keep up in Serious Sam 2 where it’s down by nearly 20 frames per second at every resolution. Even in SLI the Nvidia part struggles to keep pace with the X1900XTX CrossFire.
The lower 3 graphs are very impressive also. Here we see that with HDR+AA enabled the ATI Radeon X1900 series cards give you a gaming experience that nothing else can.
