Even under the greater demands of high quality HDR lighting, the DX9 version of Lost Planet ran faster than the DX10 version. It looks like for now at least, the DX9 version is the way to go. NVIDIA and Capcom have a little over a month to get this fixed though.
Now that we’ve determined that the DX9 version is faster, we’re now curious to see how the various high-end cards stack up to one another – can a pair of GeForce 8800 GTS cards outperform GeForce 8800 Ultra? How do the Radeon X1950 XTX and GeForce 7900 GTX compare to the newer DX10 GeForce 8800 and Radeon HD cards? These were the types of questions we set out to answer.
