GTA V: Bigger, Better, And Prettier On Pc

Rockstar says it’s been working on a PC port of its popular console title, Grand Theft Auto V, since the beginning. It’s been bit of a rocky road, with a couple of delays, but now that the game’s here, it’s hard to argue with the dev team’s dedication. GTA V on PC is a sprawling game with a huge amount of content, and it takes full advantage of all the power of a good desktop gaming system.

I am currently playing GTA 5 @ 5160 * 2160 DSR resolution on the PC. With some tweaks, The game looks bloody amazing.

5180 2160??whats ur monitor aspect ratio?i use 3840 . 2160

T9001260d ago

I have a 3440 * 1440 monitor 21:9 aspect ratio, after DSR i can hit a resolution of 5160 * 2160. At which point any game barely needs any sort of AA.

Needs a Pair of Titan X's liquid oced to 1.6 ghz to pull this resolution off.

so ur screen is 21.9 i allways wanted to know if dsr works good on 21.9 monitor too?it works perfect on 16.9

21.9 is amazing DSR works perfectly. My monitor is 34inches:

I previously had 3x 1080p monitors for Nvidia surround(note DSR does not work with Nvidia surround), However i think 1 monitor with 21:9 is better since it removes the bezzels and it requires less GPU power to run vs 3x 1080p. Also since its 1440p it just looks better vs the 1080p monitors.

If it wasnt for mods I never would have bought it on PC. Owned it on PS3 and PS4 so I have overplayed it already.... But those mods, some of them make the game at least 10x more fun.

PlayableGamez1260d ago

That is the problem, why did buy it on PS4 knowing the PC version was on it's way?

I had a feeling the Jan release was going to get delayed, which it did. Sold PS4 version for $45 like a month before PC version. That $15 brought a lot of fun for me and my friends.

Its only bigger, better and prettier on PC if u have a PC capable of making it bigger, better and prettier. 95% of PC gamers play on PCs with lower specs than 8th gen consoles. just saying

mixelon1261d ago

And? Most "proper" gaming enthusiasts play on equal or greater specs than the 8th Gen consoles. Also, steam hardware survey show your "95%" to be totally off.

Most 'gamers' on windows are playing low spec games like hearthstone, WoW, Minecraft, etc - things that work on any old machine - even integrated Intel chipsets. People interested in playing games like GTA have systems capable of running games like GTA. It's well enough optimised to run well on quite mediocre hardware.

most people don't play games, just sayin'

Its a night and day difference on how they handled the GTA IV port. They have done a stellar job with this. It takes a bit of a beast to fully max everything but its not due to poor optimization at all as its clear you're being rewarded with crazy draw distance and a ton of on screen vehicles and pedestrians.
