DX11: Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 is the second instalment in the saga of the planet E.D.N. III, ten years after the story of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. The snow has melted and the lush jungle life of the planet has emerged with angry and luscious flora and fauna. With the new environment comes the addition of DirectX-11 technology to the game.

Lost Planet 2 takes advantage of DX11 features including tessellation and displacement mapping on water, level bosses, and player characters. In addition, soft body compute shaders are used on 'Boss' characters, and wave simulation is performed using DirectCompute. These cutting edge features make for an excellent benchmark for top-of-the-line consumer GPUs.

The Lost Planet 2 benchmark offers two different tests, which serve different purposes. This article uses tests conducted on benchmark B, which is designed to be a deterministic and effective benchmark tool featuring DirectX 11 elements.

  • Lost Planet 2 Benchmark 1.0
    • Moderate Settings: (2x AA, Low Shadow Detail, High Texture, High Render, High DirectX 11 Features)

  • $109.99 Radeon HD5770 costs $5.97 per FPS
  • $149.99 Radeon HD6850 costs $5.59 per FPS
  • Test Summary: Lost Planet 2 is a tough cookie to crack, in our tests we had to use relatively moderate settings just to get some acceptable numbers. This game wants high level hardware to play maxed out. The HIS HD 7750 iCooler delivers below average frame rates at a mid/high cost/performance ratio.

    Your specs on the 550ti are wrong has the same amount cores as a 450 and not 256bit bus
