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 left the suggested settings alone, but did disable MSAA and we turned VSync off. We used the games built-in benchmark utility and averaged all the five of the default benchmark runs to get our average results.

GTAV Benchmark

Benchmark Results: When it comes to GTA V we found that the Brix Gaming UHD GB-BNi7HF4-950 was capable of 59.9 FPS on average with 0x MSAA enabled (minimums were 11-46 FPS depending on which of the five runs you were looking at). If we enabled 4x MSAA we were able to average 33.1 FPS, so game titles like GTAV are playable as long as you turn off AA and maybe some the other eye candy.

  • Wow, what a fail. I love gigabyte equipment but this is just an overpriced outdated box that should be priced at or below the console pricing. UHD that can’t keep fps above 30 at 1080p, wow.

      Agreed. When Nathan was going over the specs with me before the review, I couldn’t believe the GPU solution they went with and thought this product would have been better suited for release a year ago, prior to Pascal.
