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.

Call of Juarez is a DirectX 10 benchmark and was tested within Microsoft Windows Vista. As you can see here, the benchmark is very hard on all videocards. The MSI NX8600GT-T2D256E only does moderately well at 1024x768, with low details enabled. At the max image quality setting in 1600x1200, it's too much for even the powerful MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E.

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.

The DirectX 10 version of Lost Planet is hard on the MSI NX8600GT-T2D256E, but at least you get a taste of what this game is about at the low quality setting, running in 1024x768. Anything higher is simply too much for the videocard. Then again, turning up the details and resolution gives even the mighty GeForce 8800GTX a hard time.
