Lost Planet 2 is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Capcom. The game is the sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition which is also made by Capcom, taking place ten years after the events of the first game, on the same fictional planet. The story takes place back on E.D.N. III 10 years after the events of the first game. The snow has melted to reveal jungles and more tropical areas that have taken the place of more frozen regions. The plot begins with Mercenaries fighting against Jungle Pirates. After destroying a mine, the Mercenaries continue on to evacuate the area, in which a Category-G Akrid appears and attacks them. After being rescued, they find out their evacuation point (Where the Category-G appeared) was a set-up and no pick up team awaited them. The last words imply possible DLC additions to the game, "There's nothing to be gained by wiping out snow pirates... unless you had some kind of grudge."

We can see under Lost Planet 2, performance on the 3960X is a bit higher at both resolutions, but there's not a huge difference. We again see that while the clock speed on our 3960X is 200MHz slower than the 2600k, the new Intel platform is not only able to offer performance that matches the Z68 one, but actually manages to beat it which gives us a good idea that it's not always just about the raw MHz.
