Default Mafia II - A Look at Performance

Our review of Mafia II was published earlier this week, but thanks to the fact that all we had accessible up until launch was a preview build, the performance testing had to wait. Well, that's now all done, so if you're looking to see which GPU will serve you best for some hardcore Mafia action, look no further.

You can take a look at the full article and then discuss it here!

Even though it's near the bottom I'm happy with the 5770 performance but I still wish the whole, "game branding" idea would take a dive and PhysX be opened up to everybody.

I agree, Optix...sadly, that'll never happen.

In the meantime, while you're wishing, I'd like a pony...
