When playing Mafia 2 our GTX 500s are processing the graphics and PhysX workload at the same time, creating an unmatched visual experience for this game. Despite this increased workload the GTX 580 is still able to perform at a similar level to the Radeon 6950 which is processing less work.

For those who want raw performance the 6970 is king, performance mixed with image quality the winner is the GTX 580.
