Mafia II is a third-person shooter that puts you into the shoes of a poor, Sicilian immigrant, Vito Scarletta. Vito has just returned home from serving overseas in the liberation of fascist Italy, to avoiding his jail sentence, to finding his family in debt. The debt must be repaid by the end of the week, and his childhood friend, Joe Barbaro, conveniently happens to have questionable connections that he assures will help Vito clear the debt by that time. As such, Vito is sucked into a world of quick cash. Released in North America for PC in August of 2010, the game was developed by 2K Czech, published by 2K, and uses the Illusion 1.3 game engine.

Cutting it close to being under 40 frames per second in the stock 1920x1080 test, both cards make it through the Mafia II testing. In both overclocked tests, the Sapphire card pulls an extra frame over the XFX — possibly due to the higher core speed. However, we still see the large presence of the GTX 560 Ti.
