    How can I see GTA 5 fps and how to change them - Grand Theft Auto 5

    Grand Theft Auto 5 is a game that stands out for its great optimization. In other words, the title is capable of running on relatively machines modest. For this reason it is possible to achieve positive results on a fairly wide range of computers.

    In any case, although the minimum requirements to play GTA 5 require elements such as a Q6600 processor or 9800 GT graphics, it is better to have a computer with better features. To run this title we recommend at least a third generation i3 processor and a GTX 750 Ti graphics card, components that are considered quite basic today.

    As we pointed out earlier, having a computer with better components will make the game smoother. The most recommended is that GTA V is able to reach at least 60 frames per second, in this way you will get a very adequate gameplay.

    There are several ways to view frames (also known as FPS) in Grand Theft Auto 5. To achieve this, please read carefully the methods we will discuss below which will also be useful for any other video game.

    Using them you will be able to evaluate your team's performance in various titles and configure them for best performance or graphic quality.

    MSI Afterburner

    MSI Afterburner is one of the most recommended monitoring applications for your computer. With it you can see the frame rate of a video game and analyze the processing consumption, graphics consumption, RAM memory usage and other features that the video game is using. To take advantage of this tool, you need to go to the official MSI Afterburner website and press the «Download» button.

    As we indicated earlier, MSI Afterburner presents a large number of options that will allow you to correctly evaluate the functioning of a video game. This also applies to GTA V, as the application will be fully functional to find the ideal balance between visual appearance and performance.

    MSI Afterburner is useful for analyzing processor and graphics card usage (the most relevant components in video games). In this way you will be able to know the limits of your equipment, because by analyzing the percentages of use, it is possible to obtain a more adequate and balanced configuration.

    However, keep in mind that the attributes of this program will not relieve you of some problems as sometimes MSI Afterburner does not show the CPU temperature, so it is essential to find the above solution in case the sensors do not appear in the GTA.


    In case you only want to see the fps, you can use the FRAPS tool, a program for recording Gameplay that shows video game frames. The software offers a very simple and intuitive interface.

    Configure Grand Theft Auto 5 for better performance and increased FPS

    There are many configuration options  and also, you can change the basic aspects of the game while setting up and installing mods in Grand Theft Auto 5, in fact, some totally change the game for the better. In any case, some settings and mods will have a deeper impact on the performance of the video game. That said, we recommend that you analyze the following options to configure them according to your computer:

    • Resolution: the resolution is one of the first settings to consider for best performance. Lower resolution will lead to more FPS, but at the same time you will lose screen definition.
    • Anti-Aliasing: it will greatly improve the look of the video game by eliminating sharp edges that could be annoying. However, applying anti-aliasing results in a noticeable reduction in performance. If you are having trouble with your FPS, we recommend lowering the quality of this option or turning it off.
    • The rest of the graphics options: GTA has a lot more options to configure, so we invite you to try different configurations, to reach the one that catches your attention the most, please note that the lowest level in terms of graphics options in GTA V is "Normal".
