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.

Looking at the Mafia II numbers you can see we're again sitting quite close to the original HD 7970 once again.

 

Compared to the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition we can see at the lower resolution we're trailing, but at 2560 x 1600, the Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Vapor-X OC with Boost manages to sneak ahead by a single FPS.
