Volition Still Working on Saints Row: The Third Graphics Card Issues

Posted on July 20, 2012 AT 05:03am

Volition has assured players that it is aware of ongoing issues with AMD and ATi graphics cards in Saints Row: The Third and that it is working to address them as quickly as possible.

The problems seem to be mainly occurring in 5000 and 6000 series graphics cards, and manifest as stuttering and other drops in performance.

“Our team has provided multiple patches and updates attempting to correct this issue by adjusting key parts of Saints Row: The Third at the guidance of AMD/ATi, and they have shown mild improvement,” it said. “Those with SLI no longer see micro-stuttering, and based on our performance tests, we’ve been able to increase overall performance.”

“For those with affected cards, we’re still not up the level of quality we all expect from a Volition game, and we thank you for your patience as we work with AMD for a solution. As soon as we have more updates regarding this issue, we’ll be sure to let you know.”
