Serious Sam Benchmarks

Serious Sam 2

Source: CroTeam

Serious Sam 2 is a game that uses OpenGL and is a little more advanced than the now retired Quake III Arena. Higher numbers denote faster frames per second (FPS), and hence, better performance.

Serious Sam 2 (Quality 1024x768 Little Trouble) Benchmark Results
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. GeForce2 Ti 49.9
2. GeForce3 Ti500

5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 80.3

Serious Sam 2 (Quality 1024x768 Valley of the Jaguar) Benchmark Results

3. Radeon 64 DDR 36.3
4. ATi Radeon 8500 46.6
5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 49.5

At 1024x768 even though the numbers are lower then other FPS's, the game is still very playable with the GeForce3 Ti500 or the Radeon 8500.

5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 27.8

This on the other hand was quite painful. I got a headache running these demo's at this resolution since the whole game is so choppy! Needless to say, this resolution is out of reach for all of these videocards.
