Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 was released in March '10, 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 Desert Sunrise. 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.

Just Cause 2 paints a picture similar to the Lost Planet 2 benchmark. In this test, the Radeon HD 7950 gets beat by the reference GeForce GTX 580 at 1920x1200, but pulls ahead at 2560x1600. The factory overclocked, 3GB GTX 580, however, outpaces the Radeon HD 7950 at both resolutions in this game.

It's also worth noting that performance is ever-so-slightly decreases in JC2 when using the newer RC11 drivers with the Radeon HD 7970.
