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. 

Our results with Just Cause 2 look much like H.A.W.X. from the previous page. Here, the Radeon HD 5770 is a bit faster than the reference GeForce GTS 450, but the overclocked EVGA and Asus cards are able to overtake the 5770 at 1680x1050. At the higher resolution though, the Radeon once again pulls ahead.
