Lost Planet

Lost Planet

Lost Planet is a 3rd person shooter developed by Capcom and was originally an XboX 360 title until it was ported to the PC some time later. It uses the same engine as in other Capcom titles, such as "Dead Rising" and "Devil May Cry 4" known as MT Framework. It features the Havok physics engine and under Windows Vista and with a compatible video card, DirectX 10.

We not only use Lost Planet to determine the performance hit on Frames Per Second (FPS) when adding Anti Aliasing and Anistropic Filtering, but also the effects of changing the resolution from 1280*1024, to 1600*1200.

Settings

For all Vista tests, DX10 mode was used, and for XP DX9 was used.

High: 1600 x 1200, HDR High, 8QX AA, 16 x AF, all other settings at max.
Medium: 1280 x 720, HDR High, 8QX AA, 16 x AF, all other settings at max.
Low: 1280 x 720, HDR low, no AA, bilinear filtering, all other settings at max.

Interestingly, under XP, the 9800GTX+ Black has a good lead on the Sapphire 4870 x2 at certain settings, and keeps relatively level the rest of the time. In Vista, the 4870 x2 does much better, trouncing the 9800 in almost all instances.
