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.
We see some great performance under Mafia II and compared to the GTX 460 OC we've got here the HD 6850 leaves the card for dead, especially at the higher resolution where we see AMD performing very strong. While 2560 x 1600 might be a little out of the question as our average is only 50 FPS, you can see the GTX 460 OC from ECS is getting 62 FPS at 1920 x 1200, just 2 FPS over the average we want. The HD 6850 at stock gets 6 FPS over, and overclocked we're at 16 FPS over that 60 FPS.
