Grand Theft Auto V is an action-adventure game played from either a first-person or third-person view. Players complete missions—linear scenarios with set objectives—to progress through the story. Outside of missions, players may freely roam the open world. Composed of the San Andreas open countryside area and the fictional city of Los Santos, the world is much larger in area than earlier entries in the series. It may be fully explored after the game’s beginning without restriction, although story progress unlocks more gameplay content.
We maximise all the image quality settings, but leave anti aliasing turned off, as it dramatically impacts performance.
At 1440p the RX 480 matches the GTX970 but holds a slightly better minimum frame rate. When overclocked to 1,375mhz the frame rates increase slightly falling in right behind the Sapphire R9 390X Tri-X 8GB.
