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.




While at the lower resolution we've got no problems getting the FPS we need to play Mafia II, you can see at the highest resolution the reference clocked card is able to only just sneak across that 60 FPS average we aim for. On the other hand, the MATRIX which we've overclocked to over 900MHz on the core sees a strong performance boost that puts it in the 70 FPS realm.
