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.

Looking at Just Cause 2 performance you can see that we get those nice performance bumps at all resolutions again.

 

We also continue to see that the PowerColor HD 7970 PCS+ performs exceptionally well against even the overclocked GTX 680 when it comes to gaming at 2560 x 1600.
