It's here, we've finally got our hands on it - the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5. After sitting through one of the biggest game downloads of all time we've at last taken our first baby steps into Los Santos, or North Yankton to be precise, running through a brief section of the opening scene in GTA 5 to see how Rockstar's latest looks with gaming PC hardware behind it.
Here we're running GTA V on PC with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 graphics card, Intel i5-2500K processor, and 16GB RAM. The first video gives us a look at Grand Theft Auto V's graphics options and settings screen, as we crank everything up to see how the GTA 5's prologue plays out at High settings.

As you probably noticed the frame rate was almost unwavering at 30 frames per second. Vsync was enabled but the refresh rate is 60Hz, with Rockstar locking the frame rate down during this portion of GTA 5's intro. Once you make it outside the frames per second counter leaps up, so this is just a temporary thing.
We'll be delving a lot deeper in PC Grand Theft Auto 5 benchmarks just as soon as we can bust out into Blaine County proper. We'll be taking in-depth frame rate reports for the GeForce GTX 670, the GTX 650, and the GD Machine 2014 to see how they cope with Rockstar's latest.
