4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

When moving from Low to high graphical quality presets you can see that there is very little difference in overall graphical quality, with the only major differences being in shadow quality, lighting and reflection quality.  

Without a side by side comparison, the graphical changes are very hard to notice, which means that a lot of PC gamers will likely play at lower settings in order to achieve a smoother gameplay experience at a higher framerate. 

Texture wise Mafia III doesn't change when you move up the graphical settings, with the same texture detail being visible at all graphical settings.

Again here we can see very little difference in the overall detail of the scene, with the most notable changes in graphical quality being due to the differing location of clouds in each screenshot, rather than a change in graphical detail.  Yes, higher levels of Ambient Occlusion and shadow quality are visible upon close inspection, but when you are playing the game you will spend very little time noticing these minor details.  

In the far distance, you can see some minor differences in detail when looking at the traffic cones, but these details are so far away that they are extremely hard to notice, even at a resolution of 4K.

I have an i5-6600k and a GTX 1070 SC, running Mafia III at 1080p with unlimited framerate option and all settings on high my game never drops below 70fps and IMO Mafia is extremely well optimized, I'm quite surprised at your conclusion.Quote

Of course we cant tell the difference between medium and medium on page 4

Unless of course that was intentional.Quote

Then you're settings aren't correct. Other sites have reported similar results. 1080 is needed for 60fps at 1080pQuote

Are you for real? Mafia 3 is very, very poor on PC and no you're not playing at 70 fps on high with a 1070. The 1070 can get just 50 fps. Source: Other benchmarks.Quote

Sorry but I find this hard to believe. Mafia III is badly optimised.Quote
