DX11: Lost Planet 2
A decade has passed since the first game, and the face of E.D.N. III has changed dramatically. Terra forming efforts have been successful and the ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and harsh unforgiving deserts. Players will enter this new environment and follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirate on their quest to seize control of the changing planet.
Cost Analysis: Lost Planet 2 (1920x1080)
Test Summary: The Lost Planet 2 benchmarks are extremely demanding on our video cards. Even with the settings tuned down from their maximum levels, we can only get close to playable frame rates. It seems the CAPCOM titles are pretty much split down the middle between the MSI N450GTS Cyclone and the Radeon HD 5770 in our test bed. The Radeon HD 5770 outpaces the MSI N450GTS Cyclone at both resolutions nearly 16% and 17% respectively. Even when overclocked above the factory settings, the MSI N450GTS can't quite reach the levels of the Radeon HD 5770.
