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 two cards produce similar scores in Just Cause 2. It's worth noting that the game supports several CUDA enhancements that, when enabled, allow NVIDIA GeForce cards a slight edge over their competitors. We left these settings disabled to level the playing field to get a sense of the two card's baseline performance, but with the new CUDA processing enabled the performance relationship between the two cards reverses, with the GeForce 470M pulling ahead.
