DirectX 11 - Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5
Grand Theft Auto V is an open world action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. The game is the first main entry in the Grand Theft Auto series since 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV.
Set within the fictional state of San Andreas, based on Southern California, the single-player story follows three criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas’s open countryside and fictional city of Los Santos, based on Los Angeles.
Another solid NVIDIA title, the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 performs very well with a 122 FPS average at 1080p, however, this isn’t significantly higher than the GeForce GTX 970’s 103 FPS average indicating a level of being CPU bound here again at our lowest tested resolution.
Average framerates of the AMD R9 280X and R9 290 manage to keep pace fairly well, however, both cards seem to encounter issues with the occasional slightly ‘stutter’ that causes a sudden dip in the minimum framerate as shown in the chart above.
As always the Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 has an ace up its sleeve and once again proves it is very easy to be CPU bound with this card. Changing up to 1440p see our other cards fall behind again and widening the framerate gap to the 2:1 ratio that we mentioned before.
A special mention goes to the Radeon R9 290 here as not only has its average framerate manage to be within 6 FPS of the GeForce GTX 970, its minimum framerate has improved significantly as well.
