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 there is very little difference between the 7600 GS and X1600 XT. The results at 1600×1200 are not really playable at the given settings but gives you a clear understanding of how these two compare to the more expensive cards on the market.
