GTA 5 PC more than just a port, already running at 60 FPS
The PC version of GTA 5 is still more than a month away from launch but there are already people who are a bit concerned about the game’s performance on the platform. This may seem a little bit odd considering that members of the “PC master race” have always taken pride in their superior hardware. However, even the best hardware in the world can’t improve a bad console port and we’ve certainly seen more than a few of those these last couple of years. But GTA 5 will not be among them as the game is reportedly already running at a smooth 60 fps on PC according to a fresh report by Gaming Bolt.
The original source of the leaked info is apparently none other than a Rockstar dev who is currently working on the PC version of GTA 5 Online. Details regarding the type of computer used to run the game have not been provided, so this may or may not be a PC with high-end hardware. The article doesn’t mention anything about the graphics quality either unfortunately. Was the game running on low? High? We don’t know. Although most other details are still a mystery, the source does mention that the PC version of GTA 5 is being handed by the same team that also worked on Max Payne 3, which was overall a solid and very well optimized title. Hopefully the team will be able to offer the very same quality with GTA 5 PC as well.
Aside from a decent framerate, PC gamers can also expect to see a variety of other improvements that fully take advantage of the hardware. These improvements include: increased resolution, graphical detail, advanced damage and weather effects, and greater draw distances, to name just a few. In addition, plenty of new content was added for the next-gen version of the game, so there is definitely plenty of good stuff to look forward to here. GTA 5 will arrive to PCs everywhere on January 27th, 2015.
