Benchmarks: Just Cause 2, Mass Effect 2

We used Just Cause 2's built-in benchmark tool, choosing the most demanding of three tests called "Concrete Jungle". Fraps was used to record the minimum frame rates and monitor the benchmark tool's coherence. The best in-game visual settings were selected with 8xAA/16xAF.



When testing with Just Cause 2 at 1920x1200, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti averaged 36fps, making it 20% slower than the GTX 570. However, it offered 6% better performance than the GeForce GTX 470 and 9% more than the Radeon HD 6950. Even more impressive was its 16% advantage over the Radeon HD 6870.

Mass Effect 2
We relied on Fraps to measure performance on Mass Effect 2. We recorded 60 seconds of gameplay from the level "Lazarus Research Station" and used maximum visual quality settings with 4xAA/16xAF.



When testing with Mass Effect 2 at 1920x1200 the GeForce GTX 560 Ti was 19% slower than the GTX 570 and 18% slower than the Radeon HD 6950. Unfortunately, it was also 12% slower than the Radeon HD 6870 despite providing an 18% performance boost over the GeForce GTX 470.
