To that end Capcom and Nvidia have teamed up to provide a "Lost Planet 2 benchmark" which tests your PC's performance and grades it.
The recommended system specs are Windows Vista or 7, an Intel Core2 Quad Processor or an AMD Phenom x4 Processor, over 13.0GB HDD space, 3GB of Memory for Vista, DVD9 support, a NVIDIA GeForce 9800 Series or an ATI Radeon HD4800 Series with VRAM at least 512MB. It also suggests the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows.
Lost Planet 2 is quite the departure from the first game with 4-player action supported in this sequel. Capcom note the console versions have underperformed for them. Why not check to see if your PC rig can?
