So i see all these options in Graphics and Advanced Graphics. And they all affect my FPS, but i don't know which by how much.

But i'd like to run this game with the highest settings possible at 60 FPS.

If anyone can help me find that out quickly, i would appreciate that big time.

 

CPU: AMD FX™-8350 Eight-Core Processor (8 CPUs), ~4.2GHz

Memory: 16384MB RAM

DirectX Version: DirectX 12

Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 290X, 4072MB

OS: Windows 10 Home, 64Bit

 

Grand Theft Auto V runs on Steam. Drivers are all up-to-date.

Very similar system to me

You should be able to get 60fps with most settings very high.

Pay attention to the VRAM meter when you are adjusting settings - when it goes red, your fps will take a hit.

 

The biggest hit to your FPS is screen resolution. Are you outputting to a 1920x1080 screen or something bigger? With my system - upping to UHD 4K means I exceed my 3GB VRAM and cut my frame rate in half.

In terms of other performance hits:

*Grass detail level (I play with Ultra) = about 20% fps hit over Medium

*FSAA (I try to keep x2 on) = about 10% per setting 2/4/8

*High Definition Shadows (in advanced graphics - I only turn on for photography) = 50% fps hit

First of all, thank you for responding.

I did notice some settings didn't affect the VRAM meter at all. I'll take a bold guess and say that i can put those on max without having to worry about FPS.

Yes, i have my resolution on 1920x1080.

 

Alright, thanks once again. I'll be having another look right now.

Just another tip, GTA 5 has a little vsync issue. Circle it off and on or otherwise it might give a random stutter.

Odd. Thanks for that.  :lol:
