Just Cause 3 Dev Confirms Issue With PC AMD Graphics Cards, Offers Short-Term Solution

Just Cause 3 has officially released. While most buyers are celebrating their arrival in its massive virtual world, some are expressing frustration with poor performance.

Unsurprisingly, many of those affected by severe performance issues and bizarre bugs have one thing in common: an AMD graphics card.

It didn't take long for Avalanche Studios to confirm that there are known issues with AMD graphics cards in Just Cause 3's PC version. The following was posted by a member of the studio:
