Next, we ran Serious Sam: The Second Encounter.  We configured the game to use OpenGL and maxed out the texture and detail quality.  This game uses Croteam's next generation game engine and a slew of textures to display the in-game world on your screens.

More GL Action

 
SERIOUS SAM - TSE:

There is a lot of action and quite a few models throughout the Serious Sam: TSE timedemo.  As you can see, the Gainward Ultra 750 / XP was significantly faster than the Radeon 8500LE at every resolution.  We also enabled Anti-Aliasing and ran this test at the same resolutions on both cards.

The End is Near!

With 2X AA enabled, we obviously lost some performance, but the Gainward Ultra 750 / XP handled the increased load much better.  With 4X AA enabled, the Gainward card doubled the Radeon 8500LE's performance at every resolution.  Also note that the GF4 Ti 4600 was able to run Serious Sam: TSE at 1600x1200 with 4X AA without a problem in this test, but the Radeon could not.
