Normal Texture Quality
The game is still demanding when playing GTA V at 1080p with everything set to maximum except anti-aliasing and textures. Here we are using normal textures and FXAA with MSAA disabled.
For an average of 60fps gamers will require a Radeon HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 680, though it's possible to get by comfortably with the GTX 960 and HD 7950/R9 270X.
Current-generation mid-range GPUs such as the R9 285 had no trouble delivering 60+ fps while the higher end GPUs were pushing 80+ fps.
Already we are seeing that it's quite difficult to sustain 60fps at higher resolutions as the R9 290X and GTX 970 average 59fps while mid-range GPUs such as the GTX 770 and R9 285 were limited to around 45fps and the GTX 960 and R9 270X struggled to reach an average of 40fps.
As expected, the GTX Titan X is the fastest single-GPU delivering a whopping 84fps, making it 24% faster than the GTX 980 and over 40% faster than the R9 290X.
