DX11: Lost Planet 2 Benchmark

Lost Planet 2 is the second instalment 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

    If you can put 6 of them in SLI in an attached tower, …it could be pretty good.

    1. RealNeil

      I have two of them in crossfire and they ~are~ pretty good.

    2. Steven Iglesias-Hearst

      You will do very well to SLI 6 of these video cards since SLI is an NVIDIA technology, and the upper limit for multiple GPU configurations is 4.

      I expect you mean CrossFireX? And even still, going above 3x CrossFireX is utterly overkill.

    The PCB shot is the Radeon R9 270X, not the 280 IceQ X2 OC.

      Thanks for pointing that out for me Hassan. The review has been updated with the correct image.
