XFX Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950 Graphics Card Review

Mafia 2 - DirectX 9 / PhysX


Recently 2K Games released one of the most anticipated games of 2010, Mafia 2, which is a title that looks fantastic in surround mode and for those who have a capable system it also supports PhysX and 3D.

Testing was performed at 1920x1080 with anti-aliasing ON and 16x anisotropic filtering. High in game settings were enabled and PhysX was set to Off/High.

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.
