Serious Sam: The Second Encounter

Both RADEON 8500 cards fare much better in Serious Sam SE.  The situation isn't improving much for the 3D Prophet, however.  ATI's reference card still delivers a pretty convincing blow to Hercules' flagship.

Flight 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 the ABIT Siluro GeForce4 Ti 4200 beats the 3D Prophet 8500 and ATI's reference card.
