AMD’s top-end Radeon HD 6970 2GB is one of the best GPU choices on the market right now, and adding to its flavor a bit, Sapphire customized the reference card to produce the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam edition. In addition to featuring a copy of the game, it comes complete with many accessories (including an HDMI cable).

Mafia II

For fans of the original Mafia game, having to wait an incredible eight years for a sequel must’ve been tough. But as we found out in our review, the wait might be forgotten as the game is quite good. It doesn’t feature near as much depth as say, Grand Theft Auto IV, but it does a masterful job of bringing you back to the 1940’s and letting you experience the Mafia lifestyle.

Manual Run-through: Because this game doesn’t allow us to save a game in the middle of a level, we chose to use chapter 7, “In Loving Memory…”, to do our runthrough. That chapter begins us on a street corner with many people around, and from there, we run to our garage, get in our car, and speed out to the street. Our path ultimately leads us to the park, and takes close to two minutes to accomplish.

Being that Mafia II was built with NVIDIA cards in mind, it’s of little surprise to see those cards out-perform AMD’s all-around. In order for AMD to compete, dual GPUs need to be used. Performance is still good all-around, though, from both teams.
