Lost Planet

Lost Planet (DirectX 10)


Lost Planet is a 1st or 3rd person shooter that was out originally on the Xbox 360 but then made the transition to a DX9/DX10 title for the PC this summer.  Set in a frozen world where you have to kill the opposing aliens in order to sustain enough heat to stay alive, Lost Planet has some visually impressive settings that make it a good benchmark title.

There are few DX10 settings that you can enable to adjust for which shader path you would like to use that are only available on Vista when a DX10 card is detected.

  Um…once again the single card performance is not affected with the move to 7.10 drivers.

Lost Planet was the only other game besides Call of Juarez to see scaling with CrossFire in our last article and in this update the 7.10 driver does indeed add to the scaling of the pair of HD 2900 XTs.  But even with that nearly 18% improvement, the 8800 GTS 640MB card leaves it well behind in overall performance.
