According to tipster alloc8or on the GTA Forums, the remastered trilogy will have surprisingly high minimum and recommended specifications, especially considering these are remasters of PS2-era titles. In a forum post, alloc8or claimed that PC gamers would need a Sandy Bridge i5-2700K or AMD FX-6300 at minimum on the CPU side, paired with a GTX 760 or R9 380 for graphics.
The recommended specs are steeper, calling for an i7-6600K or Ryzen 5 2600 for the CPU, and a GTX 970 or RX 570 for video. These specs are roughly in line with the minimum requirements for typical eighth-gen titles. Tellingly the CPU and GPU requirements are a rough match for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, a notoriously difficult game to run. They are also higher than GTA V‘s minimum and recommended specs.
This raises questions, both about how the remaster will look and how it’s expected to perform. Recent leaks indicate that visuals will only receive minor enhancements. The high requirements could then indicate poor optimization and a situation not unlike Crysis Remastered. We will have to wait for the games to launch to know for sure.
