Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC Uses 14GB VRAM on 4K and Ultra High Settings?

There has been a lot of hype with Rockstar’s latest Grand Theft Auto 5 title for the PC. Not to mention the debate on how the graphics will be and the AMD vs NVIDIA fan war. But nobody was looking at what the title eats up in terms of performance on 4K resolution and ultra high settings… until now!

Have you tried playing the title on a 4K monitor and all settings taken to the highest level? If you did, then you probably know that it eats up an unbelievable 14GB VRAM! Yes, you read it right… 14 GigaBytes of Video RAM is needed to keep GTA 5 running on a 4K monitor and ultra-high anti-aliasing enabled configuration.

It seems that even Titan X falls short at this one with its 12GB VRAM. It’s insane! Here’s a pic to prove it all.

I still can’t believe my eyes! I mean, what is going on here? Is Rockstar challenging Nvidia to roll out more powerful Titans in the future or what? Let’s review the titles specs:

Minimum specifications:
OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 64 Bit Service Pack 2* (*NVIDIA video card recommended if running Vista OS)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
Memory: 4GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB
DVD Drive

Recommended specifications:
OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
Memory: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB
DVD Drive

Anything missing from the above? I think so! They should add an “Insane specification”, right? Oddly enough, a triple 4K configuration, as TweakTown seems to have stated in their post, does not affect the VRAM requirements at all. At least that’s a relief, huh? If it requires more, then a quad Titan X could have been the case to handle this beast!

What do you guys think? Is you gear ready for Grand Theft Auto 5 in 4K at ultra-high settings? Let us know!

    It’s a weird one as I have 2 x 295X2 and it reads them as being 16GB (when in theory they should be 4GB). I run the game at pretty much max settings (at 3440 x 1440) and it runs fairly well. There are a few choppy moments, but I think this is due more to the crappy FX8350 CPU I’m running…
