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.

The GTX 580 SLI setup really separates itself here against the HD 6970 CF one. NVIDIA have struggled at the higher resolutions recently, but you can see the HD 6970 CF setup gets an 85 FPS average at 2560 x 1600 while the GTX 580 SLI setup manages 114 FPS.

 

While both numbers are above our 60 FPS average we aim for, what the GTX 580 SLI setup does is start to give us options when it comes to AA and AF. We might be able to give a little bump to the HD 6970 CF setup, but the GTX 580 SLI one will be able to enjoy a larger one.
