GTA V PC minimum specs expectations after 60FPS rumor

By Alan Ng - Dec 11, 2014

Everyone is talking about the PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V, but not so much the GTA V PC release date which is still scheduled for January 27 2015.

Rockstar has been quiet to discuss the PC version of GTA V lately, which is somewhat strange considering that it is due out in just over a month’s time.

Fans are naturally expecting the PC version of the game to be the best, purely due to the fact that GTA V mods will be possible and of course, custom tweaks allowing those with amazing PC hardware to really up the stakes in terms of graphic potential.


Now, we are hearing rumors that GTA V PC development is going to be handled by the same team that delivered the PC port of Max Payne 3. Considering that the PC version of Max Payne 3 is highly regarded within the PC community, this could be excellent news if true.

The rumors mentioned here also state that GTA V on PC is already running at 60FPS which is great – remember that both PS4 and Xbox One versions are locked at 30FPS.

This information is now spreading around like wildfire, so hopefully it will push Rockstar into revealing some official details on their PC version and more importantly – reveal those crucial GTA V PC minimum specs requirement.

If it is confirmed that GTA V PC is being developed by the team that brought us Max Payne 3 on PC – how do you feel about this? What PC specs are you running on at the moment and how confident are you about running GTA V PC on max settings?

    I would take the minimum specs of some of the latest games, which do include:

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare:

    OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
    Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz
    Memory: 6 GB RAM
    Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 5870 @ 1GB
    DirectX: Version 11
    Network: Broadband Internet connection

    Farcry 4:

    OS: Windows® 7 (SP1) / Windows® 8 / Windows® 8.1 / (64-bit only)
    Processor: 2.6 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-750 or 3.2 GHz AMD Phenom™ II X4 955
    Memory: 4 GB RAM
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD5850 (1 GB VRAM)
    DirectX: Version 11
    Network: Broadband Internet connection

    Just using these two games as examples, my predictions for the Minimum Specifications goes as follow

    OS: OS: Windows 7 (SP1) / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 (64-bit only)
    Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz
    Memory: 4GB Ram
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD5850 (1 GB VRAM)

    DirectX: Version 11
    Network: Broadband Internet Connection

    Expect the size to be the same as the console version as for the Hard Drive space and Virtual Reality support natively.

      I seriously think that if you can run GTA IV in medium, or Max Payne 3 in medium, you have enough to run GTA V on lowest settings. Remember that CoD, FarCry or any very popular game are just AWFUL freaking companies like Ubisoft, or EA, who doesnt make polished word as Rockstar. (even if they have awful history as Bully or GTA IV).

    Can I run GTA V with my specs? :
    Processor: AMD Phenom ll X4 955
    Videocard: Sapphire Radeon HD6850 1GB
    RAM 8GB

    It’s always weird when people proclaim a PC game for running at 60 fps. If you have the hardware any game will run at 60 fps, it just depends what hardware. Unless there is a hardcoded lock PC games can play any frame rate, be it 30, 60, 120, 144, 300, or anything in between.

    • Alvaro M. Saavedra Jeno

      LA Noire is not the case, buddy.

      • Maximilian

        That’s because it’s got a hardcoded lock to run at 30, the facial capture is done through video files so they don’t work properly at higher resolutions. You can override it but it just screws the faces up.

        • Alvaro M. Saavedra Jeno

          Yeah, you’re totally right. Facial capture! That’s why.

        • Maximilian

          I meant frame rate btw, I’ve fixed it now.

    • Kaushik Poojari

      What would you say to Assassin’s Creed-Unity.The game is a Beast Even a 780 ti can’t throw it at 60 Fps on highest settings without SLI !! 😛

      • Maximilian

        Well that game’s poorly optimised, I have managed to get it to run at 60 fps on my 760 on ultra (minus textures which are on high) except in some interiors. But even then, if you have enough power you could get it to run at 60 fps or higher. That’s my point. Frame rate isn’t a feature on PC, it’s a sliding scale.

    I most definitely won’t be running at max settings lol
