This guide will show you how to increase your performance for “Mafia: Definitive Edition” on a low-end computer.
I’ve bought the game some days ago but wasn’t able to play it because of massive frame drops, stuttering & freezing.
I show you everything I did. This fixed like 90% of the stuttering and boosted my FPS from 40 to 70.
I will show you my system specs first.
Everything in this guide worked for me and my system.
Please let me know in the comments if it worked for you. 🙂
