I turned alot of settings to medium, 40 render distances, 8x AA. With V-Sync 1080p 60hz i get a constant 53 FPS on a GTX 760. Man o man, this 53 FPS is so much better than those the lows of 30-40 when i was running max. It has made the game much smoother and quite enjoyable to play now.

Everything as high as it can go, detail and view distance at 35 because my resolution isn't huge to the point where any higher values would show much difference. I'm getting 50-60FPS. Totally different from playing the game at a locked 30FPS with my old rig.

Hey guys, quick question... soon I'll be upgrading my PC and getting a GTX 970 and i7-4790K @ 4.0GHz. I think that'll allow me to play with max settings, but my question is do you guys know if I'll be able to play with quality ENB mods, and be able to have a lot of modded traffic cars without getting the taxi bug?

I don't see how that would ever drop below 60 fps even in Star Junction. Then again this is GTAIV we're talking about.

 

Anyway my cpu+gpu combo listed above is able to handle the big name enbs like ICEnhancer and Natural ENB, but only at max 40fps. You should be fine.

Thanks for answering, and tomorrow when I put them in I'll be able to actually test it out, and may upload a youtube video of it if anyone cares.

 

Edit: Here's the video.

Does anyone here have an AMD build that can max out GTA IV (other than detail and draw distance) and get 60FPS? Unless I shell out a bunch of cash for a new mobo and cpu, I'm stuck with AMD CPUs until it's worth the price and performance of getting a new mobo and Intel CPU, backing up my data, reinstalling the OS, etc.

Heck, my Athlon X4 760K, paired with HD 6770 can run the game at *almost* max (with console draw distance and detail distance, and also vehicle density). Ran between 25 (on crowded areas on Dukes) - 60. FPS.

 

New specs:

 

AMD Athlon X4 760K (on Turbo mode 4.1 GHz)

4GB DDR3-1600

AMD Radeon HD 6770

 

Settings:

1366x768 @60Hz

Textures: High

Reflections: High

Water Quality: High

Shadow Quality: Medium

Night Shadows: Off

View Distance: 22

Detail Distance: 20

Vehicle Density: 33

Definition: On

V-sync: On

 

FPS: 25 to 60 (any suggestions for a 30 FPS capper?)

Put Textures and reflection on medium and view distance in 1,Also put vsync off Edited by Avenged Sevenfold

Why would I? Overclocking the GPU a bit helped quite a bit. I'm perfectly fine with 30 FPS.

 

Also I've bumped the settings:

1366x768

Textures: High
Reflections: High
Water Quality: High
Shadow Quality: High
Night Shadows: Medium
View Distance: 36
Detail Distance: 32
Vehicle Density: 45
Definition: On
V-sync: On
Runs at 30-55 FPS. 30 FPS cap via RivaTuner Statistics Server.

The thing I hate about delays is, the wait til the previously scheduled month of release to announce the push back.

New build for quite some time.

 

  • Patch 1.0.7.0
  • 1600x900 resolution
  • All settings Very High
  • View Distance: 21, Detail Distance: 10
  • Max vehicle density
  • TrafficLoad mod that multiplies the ped density by 3 (3 Times the amount of peds than default, just like how 100 Vehicle density is about 3x the amount of vehicles of the console version)
  • ENB mod that just fixes the reflections to look like Patch 4 (No more square reflections on vehicles)
  • SweetFX to force AA
  • V-Sync disabled in-game, Adaptive V-Sync through NVidia Control Panel

 

i5-4690

GTX 770

 

Nice, solid, 60FPS. Benchmarked just about 5 minutes and Fraps says I get an average of 58FPS.

 

Needless to say I'm pretty happy I went back to Intel and Nvidia. IV has never felt so smooth and fluid.

Will this work for GTA IV PC:

 

2.58 GHz

 

4GB RAM

 

500 GB HD

 

WINDOWS 8.1

 

What's your GPU? Sounds like you may be able to run it at this point.

OG Cheetah

I recently got this:

 

CPU: AMD APU SERIES A10-5745M 2.1 GHZ Quad Core

GPU: RADEON HD 8610G

RAM: 8GB

OS: WINDOWS 8.1

HARD DISK: 1 TB

Although it says i can run it i get max 40 fps while on 1280x720 and everything on low.

WTF is the problem with this game? My specs are:

i7 4790 3.6 GHz

R9 280X 3GB

12GB 1600MHz DDR3

Windows 8.1

1600x900 screen

The game runs like sh*t! I can play GTA V with almost everything maxed out at 50~60fps, and yet IV runs at 40~50 fps, dropping to as low as 25!

I bought it 1 hour ago and already regret it... Is there anything I can do to make it run at 60fps and not look like sh*t?

 

EDIT: I just noticed that with vsync on the game never goes over 53fps, this is weird...

Has somebody tried IV on laptop like Lenovo G560 for example?

 

Intel Core i3-330M 2.13GHz (3MB L3 Cache)
3072MB (3GB) DDR3 1066MHz
nVidia 310M 512MB DDR3

 

I have set everything to low/off but it's still not playable at 1366x768. Is there any tweak that I could do, cause I think it should run smooth on this configuration with everything on low :/

It should work on low-med, depending on your resolution. Just make sure you've updated the game as well as your GPU drivers.

Here are the recommended system requirements for GTA IV that Rockstar gave out:

 

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz
  • Memory: 2GB (Windows XP) 2.5GB (Windows Vista)
  • Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870

Bullsh*t that this kind of setup can run GTA IV at 1080p, with everything set to Very High (minus View and Detail distance, f*ck those options) and get 60FPS. Does anyone have an estimate on what realistic CPU+GPU would be capable of doing this?

 

1080p 60 FPS? Most powerful rigs can't maintain a solid 60, usually drops to low 50's. But this:

 

Intel Core i5 4690K

4GB DDR3-2133

GTX 760

 

Should be able to come close. This game runs great on NVIDIA, not so on AMD.

 

what ? NVIDIA more better than AMD ? i don't think so , GTA IV is "Core Killer" with i5 and VGa 1Gb ddr3 , i think this game can run with high FPS

YesBut what about GFWL and that old Social Club application? Do they work well on 8.1 too?

Yes
But what about GFWL and that old Social Club application? Do they work well on 8.1 too?Yes they do. When you install Patch #7, the game will remove the old Social Club. Besides, if GfWL causes any problems then you can use Xliveless. Edited by Kevin3014

That on-board video card is going to be a problem. Although, the game should have no problem running on low settings. Anything above that and you may experience lag/stutter.

You will also need to use a commandline for GTA IV to detect your vRAM.
