Introducing AMD’s HD 6790
Lost Planet 2
Lost Planet 2 is the sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and is also made by Capcom. The events take place ten years after the first game and on the same, now thawed, EDN III. The PC version was released on October 12, 2010 and it runs on the MT-Framework 2.0 engine; an updated version of the engine used in several Capcom games. Campaign mode can have up to 4 players working together over the Internet. Lost Planet 2 allows players to create and customize their own characters which will allow them to unlock more things after leveling up and downloading content.
We are using the retail game’s built-in benchmark in DX11 with maximum settings. As the game is quite demanding, we first test at 2560×1600 resolution with no AA.
The HD 6790 is faster than the GTX 550 Ti. Let’s test at 1920×1200 and with 4xAA.
Now with the extra AA, the GTX 550 Ti takes a slight lead.
Our settings are still too demanding although the GTX 550 Ti is much faster than the HD 5770 and it sits in between the stock and overclocked HD 6790. We would not play this game maxed out in DX11 with either the GTX 550 Ti nor the HD 6790.
