It was pretty obvious from the get go that GTA V was built with the then next generation of console hardware in mind, and when it burst onto the PS4 and Xbox One, it brought with it some huge graphical improvements that really helped to bring the world that Rockstar had created to life. Though it’s been delayed a few times ahead of its now final April 14th release, the PC version of the game looks to go one better.
Though powerful, the current set of consoles aren’t really pushing technology to the limits, meaning that a powerful PC can quite easily outstrip them for raw graphical grunt, and, with the recent patches on console actually stepping certain effects back, GTA V on PC should be the most uncompromising graphical version of the game. Just check out the following trailer to see the game in action on PC and at that golden 60fps mark.
Just be aware, to see even just this video at its best, you will want a relatively recent phone, tablet or computer. Nothing extravagant, but my aging laptop from 2008 really struggles…
