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.

Like the HD 7970 we can see that across the board we've just got a consistent 1 FPS bump in performance. While consistent, though, an extra FPS isn't anything to get excited about. Saying that, though, we move just a single FPS away from that 60 FPS number at 2560 x 1600, which is nice.
