Mafia II is a third-person action-adventure video game, the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. It is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and is published by 2K Games. The game is set from 1943 to 1951 in Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname "The Empire State"), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit. The game features a completely open-ended game map of 10 square miles. No restrictions are included from the start of the game. There are around 50 vehicles in the game, as well as licensed music from the era.

Getting into our first real world test and you can see across the board we've got some nice increases in performance. The 1920 x 1200 GTX 460 increase is really nice from 62 FPS to 65 FPS. Since we're so close to that average, an extra few FPS is appreciated as it helps bump up our minimum and ultimately offer us smoother game play.
