If you have a quantum supercomputer, you *might* be able to run it.

Almost a year and a half after it first launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Grand Theft Auto V, the fifth numbered entry in the franchise that started out as a PC series, is finally making its way over to PC in January of 2015.

For players who want the definitive way to play the game, the PC version will be it, but of course, there’s the simple question of just how taxing the game will be on PCs- most players aren’t necessarily very optimistic, especially given that the last game in the series, GTA 4, was very poorly optimized.

Well, to answer that question, the PC specs for GTA 5 may have been leaked. Remember, this is a highly unverified rumor, so take it with the necessary amounts of salt, but we thought you’d like to know anyway. So… yeah, that’s a bit rough, to be honest. No 32 bit support at all? Yeesh. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage.

    These are not the requirements, leaked or official. These are PREDICTED (wrongly), these have been on game-debate for months.

    20GB? It’s going to be at least 41GB. I don’t think this specs are right at all. This is the same wrong info that’s been floating around for weeks.

  • jerrad hooper

    I kinda like the requirements. Shows my weak computer can run the game.

    I really wish game publishers would start releasing game requirements in terms of modern hardware. Having to go and look up how well a 4 year old GPU performs compared to your current one is an unnecessary inconvenience for most people.

      Really though, do you understand the point of requirements? During the testing phase they will take the least powerful setup that was still able to run the game, and that will be the setup used for minimum requirements. The recommended is the least powerful setup that gives the best average performance.

      If you have a much newer CPU/GPU, what logical reason would you need to compare it to outdated hardware? I would hope you aren’t buying new hardware for your PC that can’t even stand up against something four years old.

      Honestly, if you’re complaining about taking 2 minutes to use Google and make a simple comparison between your current hardware to what they recommend, I feel kind of sorry for you.

    • Riddle

      The reality is that very few people looking at the recommended requirements for a game are going to be using a 4+ year old GPU. The recommended requirements are supposed to be a quick reference that can convey the intended information quickly without requiring an additional search. If they can’t do that, why wouldn’t you just go and search for a better third party performance review anyway? A 2 minute search to see how your hardware compares isn’t hard, true, but at that point the listed requirements are kind of useless anyway.

      A GTX 480 is a lot better than a newer GTX 560 or an even newer 730. Just because something is older, doesn’t mean it performs worse.

    • zGunner .

      I know older doesn’t mean worse. I just figure you would be a bit more aware of the specs of your current hardware. I’m sure you are also aware enough to realize which card models are made for gaming, so the comparison can be a bit easier.

      Also, to be perfectly honest, system requirements are pretty useless. No joke, at least 50% of the time the PC build listed in minimum requirements for a game won’t be able to get more than 20 FPS, and sometimes won’t run at all. If you’re really worried about a game not running, wait until it has been out for about a week, then join the forum for that game, which would either be through Steam or the publisher’s website. Make a thread asking if your setup will be able to run the game. That is your best bet considering system requirements are bogus.
