While waiting for the game Mafia II to arrive very soon I took the time to make sure that the Green Reactor 3D Test PC using water cooling for the processor and the video card(s) is ready to take on the challenge head on. The system now has two GTX 480 video cards working together in SLI, of course water cooled as well as the CPU in order to ensure quiet operation and very high performance… plus some overclocking of course. The good news is that the two 480s are enough to handle the game in 1920×1080 resolution, with maximum details, AA enabled, PhysX set to High and in stereo 3D mode on top of all that with an average framerate of a bit over 30 fps at any time according to the benchmark available in the demo. That is of course with the Core i5 750 CPU running on default frequency along with the two GTX 480s also running on default frequencies, and with a bit of overclocking for all of them like 4 GHz for the CPU and 840 MHz for the GPU and 4468 MHz for the GPU things are looking much better with an average framerate of almost 40 fps. And hopefully the final game will be even more optimized and perform even better than the heavy benchmark built inside the recently released game demo, and I’m not going to have to wait much longer in order to be able to confirm that. Meanwhile, are you ready for the Mafia II challenge on your hardware in order to play it with max details, PhysX and in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision of course… did anyone actually get a dedicated video card for the PhysX?
