Recommended Posts

1. I have a laptop and a desktop. Will I be able to install my gta v copy on both? Or will I have to get a separate one for each????

Please help.

2. Also will the 5gb patch after installing be mandatory forever or will the retail (physical) copies get updated????

 

3. What settings and fps will I get on laptop.

Specs

HP pavilion 15-n209tx

4th gen 4200u core i5 processor with 1.6ghz and turbo boost to 2.3 GHz

4gb ram

2gb nvidia geforce gt740m.

1 tb HDD.

Will I get 40fps at 800*600 resolution with medium settings????

 

4. And on my new desktop with a 4k monitor.

Specs

Intel Core i7-5960X 6 cores(12 threads) at 3.5 Ghz

32 gb ram

Nvidia Titan X 3-way SLI

1 tb hdd.

Will I get Ultra Settings+4k+60fps???

Please help.

1. Yes, since it's tied to your Social Club account

2. No idea, likely the former

3&4. I couldn't say you'd get that performance exactly, but it's definitely generally what you'll get, yeah.

1) Yes, as long as you are not planning to log into both at the same time.

2) I believe the 5GB patch is just a chunk that was left out for pre-order only so we didn't have the complete game. Rockstar didn't want full copies of GTA V floating around before the game even launched. If you install the game now from a new download, does it still download the patch?

 

3) According to http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-740M.89900.0.html, you will be able to.

 

 

GTA V 2015

 

low 1024x768
58.4 fps
med. 1366x768
44.4 fps
high 1920x1080
10.5 fps
ultra 1920x1080

3.9 fps

 

4) Your desktop should do completely fine as long as SLI is being utilized correctly, that is the key. For reference I am running the game at 1920x1080 with all settings on max aside from a few with 4x TXAA. I average 60 FPS, almost exactly.

 

 

Good luck, you are going to love it.

Just to add to this, as RedDagger says you can play the game on both machines, but it's also worth mentioning that you can just copy across the entire GTA V folder from the first machine onto the other one.

 

Then on the second machine run the GTA V installer. Point it to the copy of GTA V and it'll work out that all the files are there. It'll ask for some DVD's to be entered but will get through quickly. It'll then install Social Club and the launcher etc. Saves a ton of time.

 

That'll include the 5GB patch files as well so download those of the first machine first.

This reply by zepman 79. Please be clear zep.

Can someone explain what he said????

from a new download, does it still download the patch?

 

 

 

Especially the line

Ah don't worry about that UTKR - that would only apply if you were downloading the game, not installing from the retail disks.

Thanks for helping me SlingShotUK but I just can't understand it. phew.

were downloading the game, not installing from the retail

disks.

 

Means no 5gb patch from retail discs?
