Volition acknowledges Saints Row 3 PC performance issues

THQ responds on Saints Row 3 PC patches
Certain owners of the PC version of Saints Row: The Third have had performance issues, such as low framerates and generally slow performance. In a statement on the game's forum, Volition clarified that the problem seems isolated to AMD and ATi GPUs. "This has mostly been seen with cards in the 5xxx or 6xxx range."

Volition reports that efforts to patch these issues have shown "mild improvement." Unfortunately, "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." If you're affected by this issue, maybe it'll make you feel better to know Volition's working on it? Not quite as good as it would feel to play Saints Row: The Third, but at least better.

[Thanks, Keith.]
