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 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 Dark Tower.  The test results shown here were run at 2560 x 1600, no AA, 2x aniso, and high image settings.

Just Cause 2 is tough on video cards, especially with image quality and resolution cranked up. The Matrix came in 5% slower than the GTX 480, but scored 13% faster than the 470. AMD's 5970 holds a huge advantage in this particular game.
