Here Are The 'Mafia III' PC System Requirements (Updated)

Updated, 9/14/2016, 9:17 a.m. PDT: Clarified the AMD CPU designation in the chart so that it reflects the core name.

We’re coming up on the October 7 release date for Mafia III, and 2K is giving its PC fanbase some time to see if their build is up to snuff with the game’s recently released system requirements.

Mafia III System SpecsMinimumRecommended
CPUIntel Core i5-2500K (Sandy Bridge, 3.3 GHz) / AMD FX-8120 (Zambezi, 3.1 GHz) Intel Core i7-3770 (Ivy Bridge, 3.4 GHz) / AMD FX-8350 (Vishera, 4.0 GHz)
GPUNvidia GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon HD 7870 Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or GTX 1060 / AMD R9 290X
RAM6 GB8 GB
Storage50 GB50 GB
OSWindows 7 (64-bit)Windows 7 (64-bit)

Those with an older GPU don’t need to worry about upgrading anytime soon, as the game requires Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 and AMD's Radeon HD 7870 at a minimum. It’s also worth noting that you probably don’t need to buy more memory for the game. Whereas most games require 8GB of memory at the base level (or 12GB for Forza Horizon 3), Mafia III needs just 6GB of RAM to run.

However, you’ll still need a massive amount of storage for the game, so be sure to allocate 50GB for your adventures in New Bordeaux.

    I wish companies would breakdown min and max specs for different resolutions such as 1080p/1440p/4k. That would be nice.

    It might physically RUN on those cards, but I'm betting to have anywheres near a good game experience, you'd need something more powerful.

    Sorry, I'm not buying that an i7 is recommended to run this game. Most benchmarks I've seen show virtually no difference in framerate between an i5 and i7. i7 sometimes even scores a few fps *lower*. In fact, most games don't even benefit from quad core - and will run fine on a dual core (quad core often shows a meagre 5-15% increase in speed), but that's a whole other debate.
