Hi all,

I have just installed the Definitive Edition of Mafia 2 and I am really disappointed with my benchmark results that showed very poor performance.
I set everything to max as I expected it will run without absolutely any issues as my HW is far beyond the recommended hardware.

I run Windows 10 and I updated the nvidia drivers yesterday to have everything up to date.

Do you have any idea what is wrong with my setup?

According to this german site the fps should be around 92 https://www.pcgameshardware.de/Mafia-2-Spiel-13147/Specials/Definitive-Edition-Test-Benchmarks-1350369/2/

Maybe something else is using your graphics card in the background or the game is just buggy for you and you need a patch. You could run the original mafia 2 which looking at the pictures the graphics are almost identical. That should make it run way faster on your computer, the system specs are lower and I ran mafia 2 on a cheap laptop well.

Also look at settings you may have a specific setting that is taxing your graphics card.

It's not really a well running game. I think there might be a bug with the latest nVidia drivers though, because I ran this benchmark with an older driver and was getting higher framerates. Turning off VSYNC seems to help a little. Maybe try fast sync in the nVidia control panel.
