Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 was released in March '10, 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 GeForce GTX 670 cards performed very well in the Just Cause 2 benchmark. Once again the GeForce GTX 670s trail the GeForce GTX 680 by small margins, that almost evaporate with the overclocked versions of the card from EVGA and Gigabyte.

Running a pair of GeForce GTX 670 cards in an SLI configuration boost performance significantly in this game, and results in framerates about on par with or just slightly below the newly released, dual-GPU poweref GeForce GTX 690.
