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.




Just Cause 2 numbers are great across the board. You can see the 290 is again ahead of the R9 290X 4GB when running in Quiet mode, but behind when running in Uber mode.


Compared to the NVIDIA offerings, though, you can see that the numbers are slightly ahead of the heavily overclocked GTX 780 Lighting 3GB at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050, while we see both cards attain 101 FPS at 2560 x 1600.
