Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Onin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.

Checking out Shogun 2, we can see that performance continues to be extremely close across the board. We can see that the X58 setup is slightly ahead at the higher resolutions, though it's only by a single FPS and at the lowest the Z68 setup manages to squeeze out a couple of extra FPS.
