System Requirements for GTA 7

We have got a lot of questions regarding to the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto. And many of gamers like to know what will be the GTA 7 System Requirements?

What  will be the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version?

As you know at the moment there is no official information about the system requirements for GTA 7. But we still try to look into the matter.

Let’s first take a look at the official system requirements for GTA 5. These data were published by Rockstar at the time of release GTA 5 PC version in 2014.

Minimum system requirements for GTA 5:
OS: Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 – 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850  – 2.5GHz (4 CPUs)
Graphics card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
RAM: 4GB
Free Disk space: 65GB
Recommended system requirements for GTA 5:
OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1
CPU: Intel Core i5 3470 – 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 – 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
Graphics card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
RAM: 8GB
Free Disk space: 65GB

As you can see the minimum requirements is quite acceptable and many people have much more powerful computer hardware. That certainly can not be said about the owners of laptops. Since the laptops often work on the integrated graphics, it is not every laptop is able to provide a comfortable game-play even with minimum game settings. What to do in this case? First of all, try to find out is there any possibility to install an additional graphics card to your laptop. If this is not possible and  you can not play in your favorite game, in this case the answer is not reassuring, you need buy more powerful laptop.

As you all know the operating system must be 64-bit, as 32-bit operating system does not support more than 3.2GB of RAM.

Windows 7

As support by Microsoft for this operating system will be discontinued in 2020, and up to this point you have not updated to a more actual version of Windows, you will not be able to play GTA 7 on Windows 7.

Windows 8

Support for this operating system was discontinued in January 2016. All users are strongly recommended to upgrade to Windows 8.1. If by the time of GTA 7 release you do not, you most likely will not be able to play in this game.

Windows 8.1

According to Microsoft’s statements support of this OS will be discontinued in 2023. Therefore, with great degree of certainty it can be argued that the owners of the Windows 8.1 will be able to play GTA 7.

Windows 10

According to Microsoft’s statements support of this OS will be discontinued in 2025. Therefore, it can be argued that the owners of Windows 10 will be able to play GTA 7.

Disk space

Since the new GTA 7 maps will require a lot of free space, it is recommended to have a hard disk with at least 1 TB. In addition, SSD is a good choice because it is able to provide fast and comfortable working.
