Lost Planet 2
Lost Planet 2 (DirectX 11)
The gigantic Akrid, epic environments, and heavily-armoured vital suits of Lost Planet 2 come to PCs beginning October 15! LP2 will be coming to your favorite digital distribution portal soon as well.
Featuring support for DirectX® 11 and DirectX 9, Lost Planet 2 delivers its Akrid-infested world in even greater detail. Through DirectX® 11 features, smoke will have lifelike volume and depth, water surfaces react realistically to player interaction and bullets, and level bosses are rendered with more detail than ever before.
The primary purpose of Test B is to push the PC to its limits and to evaluate the maximum performance of the PC. It utilizes many functions of Direct X11 resulting in a very performance-orientated, very demanding benchmark mode.
Lost Planet 2 Test Settings
The GTX 580 is easily the best performing card in our Lost Planet 2 testing and beats out not only the GTX 480 but the Radeon HD 5970 as well. The new GTX 580 is about 20% faster than the previous king of the hill, the GTX 480.
SLI scaling in Lost Planet doesn’t seem up to the standards of other games as we can see that not until we hit the 2560×1600 resolution do the pair of GTX 580s offering scaling over 40% or so. Also, probably because of that, the GTX 460s in their SLI configuration weren’t quite able to keep up with the single GTX 580 results.
