Mafia 3’s frame rate could be locked

The long-awaited Mafia III may have a nasty surprise in store for some fans: recent reports suggest the game has FPS limitations, with a maximum that barely reaches 30.

We’re sure most users haven’t even had the time to install the game, let alone thoroughly test it. However, there are some who have already managed to get their hands on the game and test it — with disappointing results.

It appears the game has major frame rate limitations and could actually be locked at 30 FPS. Actions such as lowering graphics settings don’t seem to fix this issue. The gamer who reported this bug tested Mafia III on an i5-6600K machine, overclocked to 4.5GHz with 16GB of RAM. As far as the game’s requirements are concerned, they can be eliminated as a possible cause of the limitation

Once again, these results haven’t yet been confirmed by a large number of gamers, therefore it’s safe to say these are isolated cases. However, it wouldn’t be a surprise if more Mafia III players confirmed they are affected by this issue too. As a quick reminder, Forza Horizon 3 was also affected by FPS issues and received negative reviews due to them.

Speaking of graphics, Nvidia just released a new Game Ready Driver for Mafia III to provide the optimal experience for the game. Update your drivers before hitting the play button to make sure your system is properly configured to run this game.

Mafia III has been out for only a few hours but if you already had the time to test the game, tell us more about your experience in the comment section below.
