DX10 Videocard Benchmarks: Call of Juarez, Lost Planet

Call of Juarez

Source: Techland

While Call of Juarez pulls off all the classic FPS mechanisms with aplomb, it also features interesting variations that give it the air and feel of a true Western movie. The player has the genuine impression of being a pistol-packing hero in an age when armed confrontation was the daily grind for many adventurers. The Developers have incorporated a classic shooting system as well as two extra game modes.

In the DirectX10 Call of Juarez benchmark, the Diamond Viper Radeon HD 2900XT 1GB videocard handles itself well, and easily keeps up with the GeForce 8800GTX. Overclocking boosts framerates nicely, and this game definitely can take advantage of AMD's CrossFire technology! 1600x1200 with everything enabled is almost playable when the two Diamond Viper Radeon HD 2900XT videocards are overclocked under Crossfire.

Lost Planet

Source: Capcom

This fast-paced third person shooter takes you across the vast and frozen landscape of E.D.N III. The ability to fight stealthily on-foot or from within heavily armored Vital Suits offer two unique modes of gameplay. While on foot, use the zip line to get to strategic enemy annilhilating vantage points and discover unexplored areas and weapons. Or, jump into our vital suit or hijack an enemy Snow Pirate's VS to go head to head with enormous and more powerful Acrid foes.

CrossFire technology is still in its infancy compared to nVIDIA's SLI, that's why AMD is still having problems getting it implemented. With the special patch that's available on AMD's website, it properly enables CrossFire support and the framerates go up instead of down. With a pair of Diamond Viper Radeon HD 2900XT videocards running in Crossfire, and overclocked, we get a whopping 23FPS in Lost Plant at 1600x1200HQ! Wow.
