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.

Mafia II performance across the board is again near identical. Compared to the GTX 560 Ti we can see the HD 6950 pulls out the win at the highest resolution; we're just a few FPS away from that 60 FPS mark, though. Fortunately it's going to be easier to get with this model thanks to only a 4 FPS deficit vs the 8 FPS on the GTX 560 Ti.
