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.

Lost Planet 2 is another one of those titles that heavily favor's NVIDIA's GPU architecture. Here, the stock GeForce GTX 550 Ti outpaces the 6790 at the lower resolution, but trails at the higher setting. The factory overclocked GeForce GTX 550 Ti is faster at both resolutions, however.
