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 above, we have the exact definition of a GPU limitation as both our Intel setups perform almost identical to each other. The AMD performance here is what's really interesting. It seems to hit a wall really early and while 73 FPS is a good number, if you're using a 120Hz monitor, it's a lot lower than what you'd hope, especially when you're getting 120 FPS on the Intel platforms.
