Powercolor HD6950 PCS++ 2GB Review – dual action

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. Lost Planet 2 runs on the MT-Framework 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in several Capcom-developed games.

We are testing in DX11 mode with all settings on the highest. Direct X 11 features are on high.

Lost Planet 2 is a rather boring game to play but it is a great showcase for Direct X 11 technology. Nvidia hardware outperforms the AMD counterparts although the PCS++ delivers great frame rates, from both settings.

    really clever idea to have a dual bios preconfigured like this. I know some people dont want to flash their cards due to the risk of killing it and having no comeback.

  • Nick

    Its a really nice idea to be seen as being active like this. they do release some particularly impressive cards in the last year.

  • Frannie

    Their cooler is great, my friend has another card with the same cooler and its very quiet. dual fans always works great.

  • Thomas

    PCB design is good, and although I know they could maybe have used the better memory it would put the price up a good bit.

  • Benjamin

    Im still not sold on their cards, I hear horror stories of their UK support system. which is basically non existant. that is why I go for sapphire, cause I know ill get a replacement if the hardware fails. same for HIS, crap UK support.

  • NeD

    I like their PCS cards, always really well made, but I do echo a feeling of concern in the Uk. I know my wifes brother bought a powercard card years ago and it did fail after 10 months and no one would accept it back. A word of caution for those people buying one in the UK, their local support is not good. (or wasnt ).

    Their support in USA is very good.
