Sapphire Radeon HD6850 and HD6870 Review

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.

Again the Sapphire HD6870 comes top of the pile when you take away overclocked editions. All the overclocked GTX460’s perform exceptionally well with this particular engine, with the MSI Talon at 1000core scoring well over 50 frames per second. The HD6870 does manage to outperform the reference clocked GTX460 however by 2 frames per second. The Sapphire HD6850 manages to hold onto the shirtails of the HD5870, losing out by only a single frame.
