Lost Planet 2 Performance Benchmarks: DirectX11 and 3D Vision Tested

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980Ti G1 Gaming

Article Index

The saga of E.D.N. III continues in CAPCOM's Lost Planet 2, taking place 10 years after the successful terraforming of the frozen world. Now lush jungles, large stretches of desert and populated cities make up the geographic landscape of E.D.N. III.  The dangers are far from over however as the warmer climes only served to make life easier for the mercenaries, raiders and a new NEVEC to strengthen their numbers.   The warmer temperatures also gave rise to newer, tougher Akrid species evolving quickly to adapt in their ever changing homeworld. As a snow pirate you have access to a wealth of arsenal to take on all adversaries including the most advanced mechanized battle suits designed not only to survive in a firefight but also to survive the hostile planet environment.

 

With the release of Lost Planet 2 for PC the popular console game gets a graphic enhancement makeover in the form of DirectX 11.  Capable GPU's can take advantage of advanced features like tessellation, displacement mapping, soft body compute shaders and wave height simulation to enhance the gaming experience.

 

Lost Planet 2 is a fast paced action packed game.  It requires a tough individual to survive the hostile world of E.D.N. III and it takes an equally tough card to play Lost Planet 2 in high resolution with all features set to its highest settings.  We will compare the latest DirectX11 capable ATI and Nvidia cards and how well they handle the advanced features available in Lost Planet 2. Just how effective are these enhancements to the gameplay?
