Just Cause 2 employs the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in Just Cause. The game is set on the other side of the world from the original Just Cause, on the fictional island of Panau in Southeast Asia. Panau has varied terrain, from desert to alpine to rainforest. Rico Rodriguez returns as the protagonist, aiming to overthrow the evil dictator Pandak "Baby" Panay and confront his former mentor, Tom Sheldon.

Checking out Just Cause 2 we can see that we've got some great FPS out of the new model. While the HD 7770 struggled at 1680 x 1050, its big brother the HD 7850 has no issue at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. It's not until we move to 2560 x 1600 that the FPS drops to an unplayable level.
