Benchmarks: Just Cause 2, Mass Effect 2
The Radeon HD 6870 averaged 31fps at 1920x1200 when testing with Just Cause 2, topping the Radeon HD 5850 and GeForce GTX 460 by 11%. However, it trailed the Radeon HD 5870 and GeForce GTX 470 by 6% and 9%.
Mass Effect 2
We again relied on Fraps to test Mass Effect 2, recording 60 seconds of gameplay from the level "Lazarus Research Station". Maximum in-game quality settings with 4xAA/16xAF were used.
The Radeon HD 6870 was 4% slower than the Radeon HD 5870 and 9% faster than the Radeon HD 5850 running Mass Effect 2 at 1920x1200. The new card exceeded Nvidia's GeForce GTX 470 performance by a whopping 34% and it crushed the GTX 460 by a 50% margin.
