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. 

We saw more of the same in the Just Cause 2 benchmark. The 5970 takes the lead, followed by the GeForce GTX 500 series, with the single-GPU powered Radeons and GeForce 400 series cards further behind, except for the GTX 480 which finished right in between the reference and factory OC'd EVGA GTX 570 cards.
