Serious Sam SE is able to cast the Optimus
8500 in a much more positive light, as the card outperforms
the GeForce4 using the latest drivers from ATI.
Overclocking yields 10 percent more performance than the
stock clock settings, further distancing the Unitech board
from NVIDIA?s Ti 4400 design.
Comanche 4 - DirectX 8.1 Performance
generation game engines should look like
simulators are generally limited by CPU performance, but
high resolution tests are still able to expose differences
between video cards, especially when the test features full
DirectX 8 shader support. The tables turn once again
in the Comanche 4 benchmarking demo as both boards with
NVIDIA processors beat the RADEON-equipped Optimus card.
In a situation like this, it is a fairly safe guess that
either Novalogic optimized the game for NVIDIA?s
architecture or NVIDIA?s drivers are more heavily optimized
for the game than ATI?s.
