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 Specs||Minimum||Recommended|
|CPU||Intel 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)|
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon HD 7870||Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or GTX 1060 / AMD R9 290X|
|RAM||6 GB||8 GB|
|Storage||50 GB||50 GB|
|OS||Windows 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.

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.
While that has certainly been true in the past, things are starting to change now that consoles have more than 4 cores to work with. Games are starting to leverage all cores available, which is a persistent trait once ported to the PC. So, now that the lowest-on-the-totem-pole consoles have finally taken up mutli-core processing, the entire industry is finally free to start making some compatible code.
Note that I also have an email@example.comGHz, with higher IPC and clock than the AMD X4, but while the i5 is a definite improvement over the AMD X4, I see less difference between them as quad cores than between the X4@2.0GHz and it as an X2@3.2GHz.
Minimum and Recommended pc requirements. Shows no resolution targeted, no FPS targeted, no in game settings. This is a subjective opinion from a PR standpoint.
With games today being sometimes total crap console ports not running on hardware 5 times to 10 times more powerful even at 1080p, compleatly broken games on release and a long list of etc's, giving some in-concrete data on PC requirements is like explaining to the Titanic passengers where are the peanuts while the ship is sinking.
It tells you as much as graphical fidelity based on that screenshot.
