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.

The MSI and Asus GeForce GTX 560 cards has no problem outpacing the Radeon HD 6870 or GTX 460 in the Just Cause 2 benchmark, and were nipping at the overclocked GeForce GTX 560 Ti card's heals.
