Lost Planet was tested at 1920x1200 with no anti-aliasing in one test and 4x in another. 16x anisotropic filtering was used throughout. All game settings were at their maximum level and DirectX 10 was selected.

The performance in Lost Planet is very close when running at 1920x1200 with no anti-aliasing, however when we enable the 4x setting there is a significant drop on the GTX whereas the X2 with its two gigabytes of memory suffers a minimal impact on average frames per second.

We also see a very interesting set of results in the SLI and CrossFireX comparison ... Nvidia have much better scaling than ATI and therefore have the best overall performance.
