Serious Sam 2

The GeForce 7800 GTX 512 is the first graphics card to run Serious Sam 2 singly at a comfortable speed in high resolutions with enabled full-screen antialiasing. For example, the new card gives you a frame rate of about 55fps in 1280x1024 whereas the RADEON X1800 XT 512MB is limited to 42fps. Unfortunately, the game is very resource-consuming so even such monsters as RADEON X1800 XT 512MB and GeForce 7800 GTX 512 don’t have any speed reserve – their performance may go down to below 20fps in some very complex scenes.

We should also note that Serious Sam 2 collapses into a BSOD on the GeForce 7800 GTX with 256MB of graphics memory in 1600x1200 with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering. This was not observed with the GeForce 7800 GTX 512. We think this problem is due some flaw in the graphics memory management system of the NVIDIA ForceWare driver.
