Can anyone who bought this and has a vidcard with only 1gb of vram chime in on the performance? I'm waiting for the next revision of maxwell to come out (980gtx ti or whatever they'll call it) before upgrading my super ancient insanely overclocked 460gtx SLI setup (which really still handles everything just fine).

I'm on the fence if i should just wait to grab this and the card at the same time like 6-8 months down the road or just buy GTA5 now. Part of me thinks if i get it now, i might spoil the experience with lower textures.

You'll be fine just use normal settings as long as that card is still supported by the newest nv drivers.

Setting the game's process priority to 'high' reportedly also helps performance/responsiveness. Here's the registry hack to have that automatically set:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\GTA5.exe\PerfOptions]
"CpuPriorityClass"=dword:00000003

I'm not liking it as much as GTA IV's story

Well, that scares the shit out of me because the story in GTA4 was fucking atrocious. Hey I want money, let's murder people because that's the only skill I have! Fucking awful. Was there more to it and I just missed it? I don't think so. "Hey I just dropped off this crackwhore, let's give her a few bucks... nah... let's give her $1500!". GTA4 was pretty fuckin bad.

IMO, V's story is better than IV's. I couldn't connect with the Russian immigrant theme in IV.

The cars driving feel fine for me. I think there's much more variety of vehicles too. Also the world is much bigger and that also makes driving more fun since the scenery doesn't repeat.

Biggest improvement I've noticed is the guns. IV gun play was terrible and amateurish. V sounds and feels far better as in, not an insult to our having spent money on the game.

Running it on my new MSI GTX 980 everything maxed out (except MSAA, have that on 4x just to be safe.. I don't want it to ever even remotely drop under 60 fps you see).
I got my 970 yesterday, and I am not blown away by the performance

Among other things, try DirectX 10.1. Reportedly that greatly increases framerate.

False flag to generate support for his cause?

Does he also question the existence of the swat teams? That's also a great way to stop the practice - disband them.

Lord Tea, the gui is OK but not great imo. Mouse input is laggy. Also on my system it seems to force 30fps in the main menu no matter what. Refresh rate options can be set in the graphics menu. The game is very playable with M&K so far for me.

2- rockstar social club

3 - NO not at full max settings. It will utilize your 970 well though. Wait for performance reviews.

Excellent game so far. First time I've played it. Story and gameplay I find a lot more than IV. Performance is great, considering it's launch day.

The decrypt process doubling the space on my SSD almost screwed me too, but I managed to free up enough space. Lame, R*.

Using the political system to fund the Internet based on political 'feel good' ideals panders more to artificial hysteria and emotions.

I mean, I don't necessarily disagree with some of your other points but that first paragraph in the second snippet is a bunch of claptrap. Sure things are funded in a variety of ways but do you even remember how the Internet came to be? Government funding. People act like government spending is inherently wasteful and that other alternatives are always better but that's not the case at all.

Well this isn't R&D so I find your implication that because the Government was involved in its invention, that authorizes billions of dollars of federal waste every year. That's claptrap to me. I'm not really talking about Internet here but the forceful waste of people's money. I find it repugnant that they are coercing money out of people and then proceeding to waste it willy-nilly.

Yes usually using government to solve problems is usually the bad way. The reason many people resort to government is because they don't have a real solution.

Here watch I can solve all the world's problems. Ready? The government should do it! There I fixed all of hugh-manitee's problems in once sentence.

The USF fund is currently being used to develop and deploy broadband infrastructure... but broadband customers are not actually paying in to the fund. How is correcting this a bad thing? Oh right, it isn't!

The USF has been a corrupt and ineffective money pool for a long time now. The way you put it, you make it sound like a wonderful thing. It isn't, unless proven otherwise. For example, the USF bureaucrats were found out to be buying $20,000 industrial-grade routers to tiny trailer libraries with no more than a few PC's. That's just one example we were lucky enough to hear about.

I'd best my last dollar that if you and I were to go out and see what USF is actually funding and how it is implemented, we'd conclude it's a not only a waste of society's resources, but very difficult, if impossible, to get rid of that entrenched institution.

Where does the this blatant disregard for how things are funded come from out of the right wing propaganda machine?

You get what you pay for in life, if you don't want to pay... you don't get. Simple.

That's some collectivist thinking you have there. Only the collective and central planing solves problems, right? 'Things are funded' in many different ways not just the political way. Using the political system to fund the Internet based on political 'feel good' ideals panders more to artificial hysteria and emotions.

Back to the article in question... All that said, taxing the Internet for Internet subsidies sounds much better to me than taxing long distance calls for them. That's more like a usage tax which in my view is a better tax if there is to be one at all. But that's the thing, once they have the authority to tax long distance calls, they very likely won't surrender that power without a long and nasty drawn out fight in the public arena.

When they get this new authority to tax Internet access, they will again have another way to stick their forever greedy hands into our pockets for their questionable and controversial uses. $8.8 billion dollars just last year and there's little proof that it was money well spent. I'm sure the recipients of the benefits wanted them, but was it actually well spent or even needed? Probably not.

With the recommended specs you can run 1080p @ 60fps with graphics at what settings (low, medium, high, ultra)? I've been thinking of building a new system since November. I have a core i5 750 (2.66GHz), a 660OC and 12GB RAM. If I overclock my CPU to 4GHz and am able to run this on max settings then I don't need to build a new system.

We can't answer that question yet because Hoare's statement was too vague. He's caused just as much confusion as he has clarification. You'll need to wait until comprehensive benchmarks are available, then we'll know.

The lesson to be learned is to get your performance information from sites doing actual benchmarks, not from general remarks by game developers. Only then will you know how things are going to perform and how they are going to scale. To buy a game without knowing for certain that you're going to get acceptable performance, either because your rig is insane or because you've seen real performance numbers, is some Grade A retard shit.

Exactly. Hoare's statement was meaningless.

This statement doesn't clarify much, without comprehensive performance benchmarks. Do they mean low graphic settings with a 660 for 1080@60 fps? The 660 is a slow card! Are low graphic settings comparable to PS4's graphics or less?

How come their 4K@30 fps to 60 fps hardware suggestion jumps so dramatically? SLI 980's are far faster than a GTX 760.

Believe it of not the FPS jump is that hard mate; i have a 144hz monitor and making it run at 144/ over 60 changes the performance demands on the cards by a crazy amount....

From 30fps to 60 is a 100% increase. Did they mean with vsync on? That might explain it since turning on vsync has a big impact on performance. This is why I find Hoare's statement inconclusive about the game's performance. We still don't really know how it performs. So far all we have are vague claims by R*.

According to this page, a GTX 980 has 130% more pixel fill-rate than a GTX 760. That extra percentage should cover the extra overhead that you point out might be needed, since few games scale 1:1 with GPU theoretical performance. Pixel fill-rate directly impacts high resolutions like 4K according to that page:

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 980 is a better choice, and very much so.

So lets see if a single GTX 980 gives us more than 2X the framerate of a GTX 760 @ 4K resolution in GTA V. In that case, SLI would not be required for 60fps @ 4K, unless the game is poorly optimized.

Hoare's statement gives me some concern that we should throw 4X or more the GPU horsepower for 2X the performance.

4k is a massive jump in resolution?

It's the same resolution. Try reading what I said again. The only thing that changed is 30fps to 60fps. My first paragraph mentioned 1080p so that's where you mixed up the two paragraphs in your mental blender.

Try complaining to the city/county government or get a petition going. Get on your knees and beg the government because they're the ones upholding the duopoly. In some seriousness, they probably do write in some sort of service requirements that Comcast is supposed to deliver. Not like they enforce that regulation as you have found out.
