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."




Moving into something a lot more intensive we can see some monster numbers across the board when it comes to Lost Planet 2. I think the most important thing to look at here, though, is the 2560 x 1600 numbers.


Moving to a two way setup provided a 100% increase over the single card setup. Moving to the three way setup we're looking at here brings a 200% increase over the single card setup.


This is exactly what you want to see when adding a third card into the mix. Normally you hope for performance of around the 150% - 160% mark. To see a real 200% increase, though, is just awesome and exactly what we want to see more of in cases like this.
