After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Serious Sam Second Encounter

    Serious Sam is a great FPS game that brings back many things that made FPS fun, TONS of things to shoot!!. Even with conservative settings this DirectX 8 game can tax even the fastest of computers.

    The scores shown are with the "Extreme Quality" feature turned on and resolutions adjusted within the game. If you'd like to do your own Serious Sam demo benchmark bring down the console and type "dem_bProfile=1" (w/out quotes), exit the console then choose a demo from the main menu. When the demo is complete pull down the console again to see your score.
    Notice how the framerates do not really differ that much between cards and even between normal and AA/AF framerates.
