The GTA Trilogy’s PC requirements are actually higher than GTA V’s. Of course, GTA V’s PC edition is over six years old, and hardware has significantly advanced in that time. But, it indicates the kind of improvements the game will see.

However, the minimum specs aren’t too taxing, but you’ll still need a reasonably modern rig to achieve a stable and playable frame rate.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K / AMD FX-6300
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage Space: 45 GB

Alongside the release date announcement, Rockstar Games also confirmed that GTA The Trilogy will have NVIDIA DLSS on PC. This technology sets the game to a lower resolution but gives the appearance of a higher resolution, increasing performance.

So if you have an RTX GPU, you’ll be able to hit high resolutions without a major performance drop.
