Earlier this year, Rockstar Games revealed the minimum and recommended hardware that’ll be needed to run Grand Theft Auto V on the PC. We already know that the game will be the most graphically and technically advanced version yet with support for 4K resolution but up to this point, the company has been mum with regard to the level of hardware you’ll need for ultra HD.
PC Gamer recently reached out to the developer for more information on the subject. Kevin Hoare, president of Rockstar Toronto, told the publication that one of the lessons they 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.
As a result, Hoare said their focus with Grand Theft Auto V was to ensure most people could run the game comfortably and provide a wide range of options to tailor the experience to individual systems.
The previously released recommended specs are based on what it’d take to run the game at 1080p 60 frames per second. To run at 4K 30 frames per second, Hoare said users will need at minimum an AMD HD 7870 or Nvidia GTX 760 with 2GB of VRAM. Bumping up to 4K 60 frames per second will require a high-end SLI or Crossfire setup, he added.
All of this, of course, is in addition to having a 4K capable monitor.
