Mafia II is a gritty drama which chronicles the rise of World War II veteran Vito Scaletta, the son of Sicilian immigrants. As the game progresses, Vito will join the Falcone Crime Family and become a made man. There are 15 chapters in the game, connected into one storyline.
We tested at 2560×1600 with fullscreen: on, antialiasing:on , Anisotrophic filtering: 16x, Shadow Quality: High, Ambient Occlusion: on, Geometry Detail: High and APEX PhysX: medium.
We normally test with physX disabled, but we felt enabling it with this high end hardware was an interesting, fresh look at the title. nVidia hardware runs better with this engine with physX enabled as can be seen with the results. We would need to disable this to increase the frame rates for the AMD hardware (and GTX460).
