GTA IV System Requirements

Do you meet the requirements?  

4,314 members have voted

  1. 1. Do you meet the requirements?

    • Yes (Recommended Requirements)

    • Yes (Minimum Requirements)

    • No

Question

medfreak

Well yougamers finally released their benchmarking tool for GTA IV. You can test your PC here. Although I have to say, it is very odd that it puts the minimum / recomended requirements so close to each other on the scale, that the Quad core literally has no effect, so this might be of no indication at all as to whether or not your PC can really run it.

 

But I would say it is safe to say that you will be able to run the game well if you exceed the requirements by a comfortable margin.

 

Yougamers GTA IV test

 

Click on "Can you play it?" if you didn't figure that out already.

 

System Reqs are as follows:

 

 

Minimum System Requirements

Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3

1.8GHz Intel Core2Duo or 2.4GHz AMD Athlon X2 64

1 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 1.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista)

16 GB free hard drive space

256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900

Recommended System Requirements

Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3

2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad or 2.1GHz AMD Phenom X3

2.5 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 2.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista)

18 GB Free Hard Drive Space

512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870

FUDGE!!! I ran that "can you RUN IT?" requirement testing thing, and it says i meet all requirements EXCEPT for the Vertex shader and pixel shader. it says i have v. 2.0 and need 3.0.

Is there a way i can fix this? (i.e. download something). I have a laptop, so hardware fixes are out of the question for me...

No it means that your graphics card only have v2.0 when 3.0 is needed, sadly this is built into the card so it looks like time for a upgrade for you sad.gif

DAMN!!! cryani.gif Well, I used to run GTA Vice City with DirectX 8 (DX9 was required) on my old PC and everything ran smooth, except for when it rained; my PC couldn't handle the water drops-on-windshield, so I went into the files and deleated that effect.... Anyway, what I'm trying to say is will I still be able to play the game anyway? i don't mind a crappy image. cry.gif

It won't be play on Shader Model 2.0 no new games(2007-newer) will not run at all on shader model 2.0 unless if you want about 2fps

That's pretty accurate because the last time I did a real 3DMark benchmark I got just under the 9k mark. Of course benchmarks are just an extension of system requirements and don't really tell you how well the game will run. We don't know if the port sucks, all indications are that it does not of course but who knows.

 

Still considering my processor is below recommended I am quite a distance from recommended on the scale, again its just a online benchmark tool.

No not unless if our laptop came with a dedicated card which it didn't so you won't be playing IV with your laptop

Well above it. When it came out, I upgraded to a DirectX 10 supporting motherboard, with a 8800 GTS 512MB Graphics Card but stuck with my trusty old 3,6Ghz single core CPU. Just a couple of weeks ago, I upgraded my CPU to the supported Quad Core.

 

For a maximum of 500 euros a year I can keep playing games at a respectable framerate/quality, and I think that's worth it. Good to see that I'll be able to play GTA IV on PC standards. Was quite disappointed by Bully.

Delightful

Failed on RAM, logical. I've only got 2 GB's. But not very nice they let me fail on a RAM-issue. Because with my great CPU and 8800GTS they shouldn't say 'fail', but 'average'. But whatever.

 

*in search for cheap RAM

It's funny, I had the exact same result.

 

I wanted to change my cpu anyways.

There is a thing i do not understand in this "yougamer" benchmark. If you see closer to some of you benchmark scale pictures you will notice that recommended mark "2" is on different levels - with some users on score a little less than 6000, some with over 9000 scores... When I test my system (C2D E8500, 4870 512 Mb, 4 GB Ram), the result shows that my computer is exactly on the same level as mark "2"-recommended - that is around 11000 scores. Why this benchmark gives so different results?

Like sasiti noticed, there is something wrong. In my images the difference between the recommended and minimum setting are quite large, while on others they don't differ much.
