Lost Planet 2 Benchmarking - Radeon HD 5850 vs GeForce GTX 460 1GB

Last week, we took a look the DirectX 11 Benchmark for the game Mafia 2 and this week we have yet another new DirectX 11 benchmark for you now that the Lost Planet 2 benchmark has been released. The Lost Planet 2 standalone benchmark is tough on video cards and compare an ATI Radeon HD 5850 to the MSI GeForce GTX 460 Cyclone 1GB video card to see how the game runs!

Looks like a cool game. Too bad I don't have the graphics power to even load up an opening screen, let alone play it! :oops:

Maybe I'll be able to afford one of these cards after they've came out with the Radeon 9950 and GTX 960... :lol:
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Nvidia seems to be on top with DirectX 11 performance. Interesting how it's switched under DirectX 9 mode. Probably because Fermi was designed from the ground up for DirectX 11 features.

Just for reference. I got 38.6 FPS Average with a Q6600@ 3.2Ghz and an HD 5870 at stock speeds. 1920x1200. No aa. VSYNC off. Everything else on high.

Test 'A'. I wasn't at all impressed by the looks of this "game" though I must say. Some of it was nice. But I still haven't found a game that rivaled Crysis' wow factor imo.

@Hark, I do believe the 5000 series was also built for DX 11 from the ground up. ATi is notorious for being behind the curve with drivers. Give em time. :)

Edit: Ran Test 'B' with the same settings. 35.4 FPS. With a dip down to 11.xx FPS. Seemed to run smoothly though.

Edit#2: Hark, though nVidia's tessellation implementation is superior to ATi's from what I can gather. That's truly ironic since ATi has been pushing for it since the days of the "N-Patch".

I've heard a lot that ATI is poor with drivers, but are they really? If ATI got their act together, would they be able to give an excellent boost in performance to their cards? I noticed that after the initial benchmarks, Nvidia's GTX 400 series got a nice boost after some driver release. I would love to see the same coming from ATI.

More so in the past. However, ATi seems bent on not breaking with tradition. :lol:

They seem to release a lot of bogus drivers that really have no effect on performance or IQ. Seems, just to say they release updates monthly. But yes, usually after a new game comes out they release a "Hotfix" driver to give a boost to popular games or, as the latest example, AA in Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. =D>
