Mafia III Day 1 PC Performance Review

1440p Testing

At 1440p gamers will need a GTX 980Ti or above to be able to run this game at a steady 60+ FPS, which even then is only at low settings. At high settings gamers will need to have a minimum of a GTX 980Ti to run Mafia III at a steady 30+FPS, which seems overly demanding when considering the graphical quality on display here.  

When considering the fact that GTA V is able to perform well on PC and offer superior graphical quality, Mafia III's performance simply seems awful, especially considering the age of GTA V.  

Looking at the RX 480 and GTX 1060 we can see that neither GPU can achieve a solid 60+ FPS, with both only achieving a stable 30+ FPS at the Lowest quality preset.

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
