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 the HDR tests the 7950 GT starts off pretty strong only 6fps behind the X1900XT 256 but by the time we reach 1920×1200 it’s down by 11fps.
And in the AA results we see the 7950 GT much more competitive. It’s just under 7fps faster than the X1900XT 256 at our lowest tested resolution and falls to just 1.7fps slower at the highest. Notice in all of our tests just how much faster the 7950 GT is than the 7900 GT it replaces.
