Grand Theft Auto V

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 no MSAA with 16x AF and 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. 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.

1080P Benchmark Results: The XFX Radeon RX 460 4GB graphics card came in at 41.2 FPS and that looked slow compared to the 63.5 FPS average delivered by the GeForce GTX 1050 2GB. The faster GeForce GTX 1050 Ti cranked out an impressive 68.9 FPS average!

    I notice that the idle GPU-Z readings show power usage at around 47% of TDP, which is about the same as my one reads too. But that would equate to about 35w, which can’t be right as other reviews have directly measured it to be about 4w on idle. So is this a bug or what?

  • Great review, I personally love GTX 1050 TI and use almost one year, After that i review my experience with this card on my blog. http://www.graphicscard.info/

      No offense Fawwad, but they’ve not been out for a year, only a few months. I’ll also avoid that website. 😉
