Demanding benchmark that is included in the Mafia II open-world crime title. The title begins with an exterior gunfight, highlighting cars losing parts and being destroyed. The demo then moves inside a warehouse which highlights a gun battle, with destructible environments (brick columns) and excellent flame effects.

One thing to note is that the demo performs much better on a second run-through. The first run shows noticeable hiccups during the loading of different scenes. Subsequent runs run much smoother, though the overall average isn't seriously effected.

Mafia II is a fairly demanding title. The Radeon HD 7750 passes 30fps at 1600x900, and comes close at 1080p. The Radeon HD 7770 GHz passes 30fps at max settings in both instances. Mafia II is quite demanding in Eyefinity, and no card in this class hits 30fps at max settings. With enough tweaks 30fps may be attainable, but you would be better served stepping up to a larger card, preferably one with a larger frame buffer.
