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 6990 performed exceptionally well in the Just Cause 2 benchmark. In this set of tests, the Radeon HD 6990 was about 67% faster than the GeForce GTX 580 at both resolutions and between 91% and 92% faster than the Radeon HD 6970.
