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.

You can see we hit a bit of a wall at about the 110 FPS mark for our AMD cards. That means it performs similar at these lower resolutions. Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, we see the cards begin to separate themselves, and we ultimately continue to see exceptional performance from our HD 6870x2 with very playable numbers.
