Lost Planet 2
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


Lost Planet 2

A follow-up to Capcom’s Lost Planet : Extreme Condition, Lost Planet 2 is a third person shooter that takes place again on E.D.N. III ten years after the story line of the first title. We ran the game’s DX11 mode which makes heavy use of DX11 Tessellation and Displacement mapping and soft shadows. There are also areas of the game that make use of DX11 DirectCompute for things like wave simulation in areas with water. This is one game engine that looks significantly different in DX11 mode when you compare certain environmental elements and character rendering in its DX9 mode versus DX11. We used the Test B option built into the benchmark tool and with all graphics options set to their High Quality values.


The performance trend continued in our Lost Planet 2 tests, but in this benchmark the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core Limited Edition offered performance well ahead of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and only slightly trailed the GeForce GTX 570.

zotac is a awesome card maker. they have really good warranties. If i were in the market for a new GPU ( i have a xfx 6950) i would just spend the money on the 570 or 6970.

I'm not comfortable with Zotac either. (past experiences)

But all is not lost, as EVGA is making one of these Hyper enabled 560's too.

@realneil, MSI is making one too. I've been gravitating towards MSI lately. Here is a review of theirs, I like their twin frozr III cooling solution.

i tend to stick with evga gpus. i like the blacked out style much better anyway (just need some black pcb)

Sweet... Now if only someone was foolish enough to put 2GBs on that; then we'd have a deal-breaker of a card.

I mean EVGA came up with a 2.5GB 570 card (which came with a 560Ti cooler), why can't NVIDIA for at once at least include 2GBs of memory on their reference cards; I mean ATI has them on their cards, and these things with 1.2GB of memory aren't really that future-proof; even if you SLI them. SLI duplicates the scene to both of the cards and then renders them, meaning that you're still going to have 1.2GBs of memory no matter how many cards you put in, and when your playing a graphics intense game, that 1.2GBs of memory can get used up pretty quickly.

I've never tried Zotac before, but from many reviews I've read they seem to be a good brand. But..would it be worth getting only 1 of these cards?? SLI in the future wouldn't work out too well if you wanted to throw in another cause they would be gone!

"The performance is just about the same as the GTX 570, so its a good card. I was expecting the price to be lower, but the 570's have gone up a bit to an average of $339, so this card has a good price point for now, and having it capable of 3way SLI was a smart idea."
