DX11: Lost Planet 2 Benchmark

Lost Planet 2 is the second installment in the saga of the planet E.D.N. III, ten years after the story of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. The snow has melted and the lush jungle life of the planet has emerged with angry and luscious flora and fauna. With the new environment comes the addition of DirectX-11 technology to the game.

Lost Planet 2 takes advantage of DX11 features including tessellation and displacement mapping on water, level bosses, and player characters. In addition, soft body compute shaders are used on ‘Boss’ characters, and wave simulation is performed using DirectCompute. These cutting edge features make for an excellent benchmark for top-of-the-line consumer GPUs.

The Lost Planet 2 benchmark offers two different tests, which serve different purposes. This article uses tests conducted on benchmark B, which is designed to be a deterministic and effective benchmark tool featuring DirectX 11 elements.

  • Lost Planet 2 Benchmark 1.0
    • Settings: Benchmark B, 32xCSAA, High Shadow Detail, High Texture, High Render, High DirectX 11 Features

    Which fans are they using on this cards cooler if the fans are made by Zunshan I wouldn’t touch it with a 2000mtr barge pole

    2 from 2 HIS graphics cards both with ZunShan fans had the fans fail within the first 12 months of ownership 1st fan failed at 9 months 2nd fan failed at 7 months, both became very noisy as if the bearing were dry neither could be re-lubed as neither fan could be taken apart to do so without breaking the housing making the fan useless

      Hi Athlonite.

      This model isn’t using those ZunShan fans that you were referring to. Instead they are using FirstDO 12V DC Brushless 0.35AMP (model# fd7010h12d) fans.

      Hope this helps,

      Steve.

    I like the way you’ve included R9 270x and 280 – gives pretty clear idea of how things start to scale with those extra stream processors. Pitting everything against a GTX Titan/R9 295 (like what some other sites are doing) sometimes yields only confusion. Fine review, Keep them coming :)
