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."

Lost Planet 2 is really intensive and you can see the GTX 550 Ti by itself just doesn't get playable numbers while the GTX 560 Ti gets just over 60 FPS at 1680 x 1050. The Palit GTX 550 Ti SLI setup manages to get 60 FPS better at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200.

 

Like every other setup here, though, not a single one is able to break over the 60 FPS mark at 2560 x 1600.
