Volition are apparently still hard at work fixing some of the nasty performance issues plaguing Saints Row: The Third players with certain graphics cards.
Owners of 5xxx or 6xxx series ATi graphics cards have sufferered from "micro-stuttering and general performance drops" on capable rigs, and hopefully this will soon be a thing of the past.
"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,” reads an official post on the Saints Row forum. “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.” [via Joystiq]
