Strike Force: The new ATI Radeon 9800, 9600 and 9200 Series

Serious Sam: Second Encounter

We forced all NVIDIA cards to use a 24Bit Z-buffer. Otherwise, the cards would have defaulted to a 16Bit Z-Buffer, while the ATi cards use 24Bits.

NVIDIA cards feel right at home in Serious Sam, as the benchmark scores bear out. The FX 5800s take a clear first place. The Non-Ultra doesn't start to fall behind until the resolution hits 1600x1200. The performance delta between the 9800 and the 9700 is only very small.
