Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 was released in March 2010, from developers Avalanche Studios and Eidos Interactive. The game makes use of the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the similarly named original. It is set on the fictional island of Panau in southeast Asia, and you play the role of Rico Rodriquez. We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article using one of the built-in demo runs called The Concrete Jungle.  The test results shown here were run at various resolutions and settings. This game also supports a few CUDA-enabled features, but they were left disabled to keep the playing field level. 

The Radeon HD 6900 series cards were significantly faster than the Radeon HD 5870 and 6870 in the Just Cause 2 benchmark at both resolutions, but they trailed the GeForces and Radeon HD 5970 by wide margins.

Once again, the Radeon HD 6900 series cards show good performance scaling in two-card configurations, but they weren't quite able to catch the GeForces.
