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 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.

Talk about a good, old fashioned, butt whoopin'. The Asus MARS II smoked every other card by a wide margin at both resolutions in the Just Cause 2 benchmark. The MARS II's closest competitor--the Radeon HD 6990 AUSUM--still finished about 17FPS behind at the highest resolution we tested.
