GTA V & SteamVR Performance Test

GTAV

Grand Theft Auto V, currently one of the hottest PC games, was finally released for the PC on April 14, 2015.  Developed by Rockstar, it is set in 2013 and the city of Los Santos.  It utilizes the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) which Rockstar has been using since 2006, with multiple updates for technology improvements.

In Grand Theft Auto V we set the game to run with high image quality settings as we didn’t want the GPU to bottleneck the system too bad, but wanted a setup that your average gamer would actually play on with this system. We used the games built-in benchmark utility to have at least one game we used that could be compared to your setup at home. We averaged all the five of the default benchmark runs and omitted both the minimum and maximum values as those results are garbage due to major inconsistencies.

Benchmark Results: When it comes to GTA V we found that the CyberPowerPC Gamer Extreme was capable of 104.1 FPS with 0x MSAA enabled. We were so happy with this we enabled 4x MSAA and we were still averaging above 60 FPS, but just barely. If you want to keep high image quality settings and are okay with no MSAA you can get away with 75.7 FPS on average at 2560 x 1440!

Undoubtedly someone will ask how the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR does with Virtual Reality (VR) game titles since this is a gaming PC labeled as being VR ready. We don’t have a VR headset to actually try VR games out, but we did run the StreamVR Performance Test and found that all the frames were above 90 FPS and it scored a ‘high’ rating with an average quality score of 6.5.

    What is the weight of the pc because I want to know the Shiping cost in my country

  • lonemuffin

    i have a few questions
    1. On amazon it says that it has a i5-7400, so will they change the processor due to availability reasons or will that always stay the same no matter what
    2. Is it possible to upgrade to a nividia 1070

  • Mark

    This was my first PC but. I always went with the laptops but I wanted something that I could upgrade down the line. I didn’t do enough research into this computer and if Cyberpowerpc can’t fix it and send it back I will be disappointed. The good news is that I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, ignorance is bliss. I didn’t know about the power supply. I did the power supply test after it crashed and wouldn’t turn on. The power supply is still working but the tech support says that the motherboard itself is fried. Was this caused by the power supply? Will a Corsair 750 be an improvement? One month without a PC….. I’m going crazy and I just want to make sure that it works and stays working when I get it back. Help?!?

    yeah, that power supply WILL fail, if you buy this system do yourself a favor and fit it with a namebrand psu; you can use the one the system ships with as a nifty doorstop or paperweight, the possibilities are practically endless… unless you count the possibility of long-term use as a power supply… the possibilities end there

    • Nathan Kirsch

      The High Power HPG-600BR-F12/14S has been around since 2010 and I don’t see too much about it online. Does it have a bad track record or short life span? Let me know if I missed something! All power supplies will fail, but I don’t know much about High Power models.

      • Spacecreepkitan

        I can only speak from personal experience ( and everyones personal experience will vary ) but I’ve had them in a couple cheap setups and they failed relatively quickly, no damage to any other components or anything, but i definitely don’t trust them, the systems here are still a good value even after buying a more reliable power supply.

        • Nathan Kirsch

          I totally understand and I’d take a good EVGA or Corsair PSU over a High Power model on any given day based on the same personal experiences. Having used this system and pounded on it for a week it seems like this PSU is okay and it should be okay.

          Can you recommend a better power supply that will work in this PC and will be compatible with higher end video cards? Thanks.
