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.

Moving into Mafia II we've got a few important things here. The first is that we're again sitting around GTX 580 performance across the board. The second is that we manage to break that 60 FPS barrier at 2560 x 1600.

 

The third is compared to the AMD side of things you can see we're ahead of the HD 7870 at the lower resolutions, but fall a little behind when we get to the highest. Again, though, the most important thing is that we're able to break that 60 FPS number at the highest resolution for what we consider to provide a smooth gaming experience.
