Several months ago Rockstar has honored us with the presentation of the minimum and recommended requirements for the PC to play Grand Theft Auto 5 on our machines, when it will release on April 14. The PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will support 4K resolution, and it is never clear as the question if we play at the spectacular 4K resolution. That’s why the site, PCGamer came to the studio to see what they had to say.
Grand Theft Auto 5: Rockstar reveals the recommended requirements to play at 4K resolution
First, they were a little franeleo from the president of Rockstar Toronto, Kevin Hoare:
“One of the lessons we have learned over the years through Grand Theft Auto IV and Max Payne 3 on PC was that people want the freedom to configure their system to suit their preferences,” says Kevin Hoare, president of Rockstar Toronto. “Our focus for Grand Theft Auto V was to ensure most people could run the game comfortably, and provide a wide range of options to tailor your experience to your system.”
According to Rockstar, as specified in the recommended requirements (i5 with GTX 660 2GB NVIDIA / AMD HD7870 2GB) enough to run the game in 1080p at 60 frames per second. And to run 4K obviously the situation becomes somewhat more demanding, and if you do not have an SLI / Crossfire some of the most powerful Graphics cards, never reach 30fps.
“To run the game on a screen 4K at 30fps, you’ll need a minimum of AMD HD 7870 or NVIDIA GTX 760 with 2GB of VRAM.” While to reach 60 frames per second is needed “high-end SLI or Crossfire setup. “
“The optimal way to run the game will depend on an individual’s preference,” says Hoare, noting that the multitude of graphics options will allow players to find a balance between a high framerate and high settings.
