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 Mafia II, we can again see that the HD 5850 Xtreme has no problem dealing with the GTX 550 Ti and HD 6850 with it again performing strong and offering over 60 FPS at both resolutions. The HD 5830 does a good job at 1680 x 1050, but does fall slightly at 1920 x 1200. Against the competition, though, it again manages to outperform the GTX 550 Ti.
