Suggested GTA V System Requirements

GTA V PC Release Date

GTA V Coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One ?

It has rumored yet again that GTA V might finally arrive to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Most of you might have read the article by BehindGames‘s website where the author shared the rumor on GTA V’s release. There is no official word from Rockstar so we still cannot be sure. According to a german retailer it is due release in June. Here is an screenshot from BehindGames just as a reference.

Say if this rumor is true, does the huge amount of PC Gamers waiting for GTA V’s release have the necessary hardware ?. Just as a general point of discussion here are my “Suggested” GTA V System Requirements, “IF” we actually get GTA V on PC.


Suggested GTA V System Requirements

Since GTA V on PC is likely to be a next gen port, the system requirements are likely to be high. If the game ever comes on next gen consoles it would use the new hardware to its potential, otherwise there would be no reason to buy it on your next gen console if you have previously played it. GTA has always gotten ports for their PC versions which perform poorly. GTA 4 was also a bad console port with constant fps drops and bad textures. The next gen version might have superior textures though. So to render the huge open world with next gen graphics here are the suggested gta v system requirements.


  • Processor: Minimum 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 or AMD equivalent.
  • Clock Speed: A minimum of 2.3 Ghz
  • Ram: Minimum 8 Gb
  • HDD Space: Around 40 Gb
  • GPU: Minimum Nvidia GTX 480 or ATI equivalent.


Lets compare them with a PS4. A PS4 uses a custom single chip Octa-Core Processor, keep in mind that a minimum requirement means poor graphic quality and low fps so to get better fps you might need a better CPU. I believe the recommended Ram should be around 16 Gb to get a better performance, PS4 uses a 8Gb ddr5 ram but not to forget that a console is solely made for the purpose of gaming. I am uncertain about the space it would require though. I stated that the minimum GPU that might be required would be a GTX 480, the recommended one should be a Radeon R9 in my opinion. Minimum system requirements are mostly a compromise and do not provide the best gaming experience.

The point of sharing suggested GTA V System Requirements is to generally discuss whether if PC gamers can actually run GTA V or not ? Majority of the PC gamers have an inferior specced PC because Gaming PC’s are quite expensive.

Share your views about whether if you agree with these system requirements or not and what in your opinion would be a better option.
