The performance gains in Just Cause 2 aren't nearly as impressive as they were in Aliens vs. Predators. Instead, this title demonstrates trends similar to Battlefield: Bad Company 2. There isn't steady improvement from one driver to the next. The numbers show a 1% to 2% drop in performance when we install Catalyst 10.8. Up to this point, this is the first benchmark where we see better improvement as we work our way up the quality and resolution ladder.
