AMD has cautioned reviewers on DX10 "Lost Planet" benchmark to be released
very soon. True enough,
PCGH has managed
to benchmark HD 2900 XT against 8800 GTS and the results are very clear; 19fps
vs 39fps. Here’s a snip from the email :

Tomorrow Nvidia is expected to host new DirectX 10 content on nZone.com in
the form of a “Lost Planet” benchmark. Before you begin testing, there are a few
points I want to convey about “Lost Planet”. “Lost Planet” is an Nvidia-sponsored
title, and one that Nvidia has had a chance to look at and optimize their
drivers for. The developer has not made us aware of this new benchmark, and as
such the ATI Radeon driver team has not had the opportunity explore how the
benchmark uses our hardware and optimize in a similar fashion. Over the next
little while AMD will be looking at this, but in the meantime, please note that
whatever performance you see will not be reflective of what gamers will
experience in the final build of the game.
