Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB SOC Review (Page 9 of 13)

Page 9 - Benchmark: Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2 runs off an updated version of the original game's Avalanche Engine; aptly named Avalanche Engine 2.0. This DirectX 10 game is released on March 23, 2010. Rather than manipulating anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering settings as we have done in majority of our previous benchmarks, we have decided to leave everything at the highest possible setting at 1920x1200. The game also features a trio of in-game benchmarks, so to make our results easily comparable against yours, we have decided to put them through the tests rather than using custom runs. The most demanding benchmark is Concrete Jungle -- with frame rates quickly dipping into unplayable rates at minimum, only the GTX 570 came close to be considered able to play Just Cause 2 maxed out at 1920x1200. However, reducing the AA and AF will retain visually appealing graphics at playable frame rates. Naturally, the more performance oriented and upmarket Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB SOC destroyed the midrange cards, and with quite a gap, too.
