In last than a month we're going to suit up as mob boss Lincoln Clay and wreak revenge against the Italian mafia who destroyed his friends and family while away fighting in the Vietnam War. Mafia III promises to ooze 60's cool, delivering the series' trademark period authenticity as the streets of New Bordeaux are rife with crime. Don't just head out there all guns blazing though, check out the official Mafia  3 system requirements first to make sure your PC is sufficiently tooled up.

Mafia 3 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 50 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Mafia 3 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 290X

I know a lot of folks have been holding out for these before laying down cash for a pre-order, and fortunately Mafia 3 isn't the most demanding game around. A semi-decent gaming PC from the less four or five years should be capable of meeting the minimum specs for Mafia III.

When it comes to the CPU this looks a little scary when looking at the 9 star rating over on Mafia 3's game page, but the Intel Core i5-2500K is really a very old processor at this stage. With AMD's limited CPU releases the tech advancements have really slowed down though, so the 2500K still manages to hold its own in just about any game today. So unless you've got a really, really old PC, I wouldn't fret too much about Mafia 3's seemingly high CPU demands.

Where you should be concerned though is in meeting the minimum graphics card requirements for Mafia 3. These are actually a smidgen lower than I anticipated they would be, in particular the minimum. Provided you've got at least 2GB GDDR5 memory you should be good to go; anything less and you're in trouble. It's also unlikely many of you have 6GB memory and I'd hazard a guess it's much safer to opt for 8GB if you can. Even 8GB has cause the likes of Rise of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to crash on me lately.

Recommended requirements for Mafia 3 are obviously a lot higher, but this should only concern you if you're dead set on cranking all the settings up. Those of you rocking a GeForce GTX 970 should be absolutely fine here, despite the 10-series GTX 1060 creeping into the recommended.

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the Mafia 3 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Mafia 3 GPU benchmark chart.

I have hope that either it goes the route of mgsv or has an open af config file,but the 2gb vram makes my expectations go down the toilet. :(

Wow! You still think your rig's not gonna make it? I'm hopeful with the lowest end rig. I can run GTA 5, I can run Mafia 3. And, you're gonna run it a high setting.

I think you can run it. but maybe on low to some medium settings on 30fps but definitely not on 1080p resolution. cause someone said that i can run this game on low-some medium settings at 30+ fps at 720p.

Looking like the cpu requirements are almost identical from minimum to recommended but gpu requirements make quite the jump.
