Grand Theft Auto V is the latest installment of the all famous adventure game series by Rockstar. It has achieved several game of the year awards. Released in 2013, GTA V is surprisingly still one of the most popular games to this day. That’s mostly due to the multiplayer service launched by the publisher, that enables players to create their own alter ego and connect in the world of GTA V. The game also features an interesting single-player story, where you take on entertaining missions that may require you to steal, rob, fight people and drive recklessly through the world’s many roads.

Back to the day it was released, Grand Theft Auto V could be played only on Xbox and PlayStation console systems. When Rockstar launched a PC version, only the most expensive gaming PCs could handle the game all while offering a decent performance. Even though it was designed for 2013 systems, it’s still a rather demanding game. Today, you could comfortably play it on a gaming laptop. But, you’ll have no chances for going nothing above low graphic settings, if you run it with an integrated Intel GPU.

Let’s first have a look at the recommended system requirements:

Recommended System Requirements For GTA 5

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB

So, which are the specs that you need to look out for the most? If you’re going to play GTA V and its Online counterpart, I’d say the processing power of the laptop is a major point. You should aim for at least an 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor. Next in line, we have the GPU. If you want to run GTA V smoothly, on medium to high graphic settings, you’ll have no choice but to go for a dedicated graphics card, like the entry-level Nvidia GeForce MX150.

Now that we got you covered with the specifications, let’s have a look at some of the best laptops for GTA 5 available right now.
