Volition acknowledged on its forum today that many players of the PC version of Saints Row: The Third have been experiencing performance issues with the game and they are currently working on a solution.

Some of the issues included low framerates and generally slow performance; the Volition team were able to narrow down the problem to AMD and ATi GPUs with cards in the 5xxx or 6xxx range.

"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," a representative from the Volition team wrote on their 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. As soon as we have more updates regarding this issue, we'll be sure to let you know."
