Mid-Range NVIDIA GPU Battle: GTX 460 vs. GTX 470
Just Cause 2 - DX10
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.
At 2560x1600, the SOC GTX 470 mirrored the HD 6870s performance at 38 FPS. The other two resolutions showed the card was a touch faster than the HD 6870, but slower than the HD 5870. And in all tests, the GTX 460s trailed the rest of the group, with the MSI Hawk being the faster of the two due to higher clock speeds.
