GTA-V for PC -  VGA graphics performance

Winter has been coming .. twice for the PC community to finally enjoy Grand Theft Auto V on that true gamers platform, the PC. The game after an announcement delay back in 2012 was released September 17, 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and later on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Afterward the PC launch version got postponed, delayed and then once more delayed, to much annoyance of the community. Back in Q1 of this year the game was again pushed back, now to be released April 14th, 2015.

It's finally here though and GTA-V seems to become one of the hottest PC game releases of 2015 and Rockstar is doing it right with this release, all 13 previously released DLC updates are available including the latest Heists, featuring Adversary Modes, new jobs, vehicles, weapons, clothing, masks, and more for this PC version. Developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games they certainly took the time for this game, but the PC version has graphics enhancements, specifically for the PC gaming. A long wait, but will it be worth it ? Well, we think so. While Grand Theft Auto V is said to be an AMD Gaming Evolved title, the game’s GeForce page lists one exclusive NVIDIA feature that will be supported by it as well.

For those not familar with the series, Grand Theft Auto V is an open world, action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. An enhanced version of the game was released on 18 November 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and was scheduled to be released on 14 April 2015 for PC slash Microsoft Windows. The game is the first main entry in the Grand Theft Auto series since 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV. Set within the fictional state of San Andreas (based on Southern California), the single-player story follows three criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas, which includes open countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles).

It is stated that the game on the PC platform is featuring the most graphically and technically advanced version of GTAV with enhanced resolution, increased frame rate, greater draw distances, new depth of field effects, and much more. Grand Theft Auto V for PC also features the Rockstar Editor for advanced moviemaking, the ability to create custom soundtrack playlists a brand new radio station featuring all new music created for and inspired by the game. Grand Theft Auto V for PC also includes Grand Theft Auto Online, now for 30 players. All previously released Rockstar Games-created content including Heists, are available at launch for PC.

In this article we will test modern graphics cards on the following resolutions, Full HD (1920x1080) - WHQD (2560x1440)  and 3840x2160 (Ultra HD) with this game title, we will peek at graphics memory usage, frame-time micro-stuttering performance and overall quality versus performance.
