gta-v-settings-3 gta-v-settings-4

Note: The above screenshots show all settings. We tweaked some of the above for this test, including disabling FXAA.

Comparison Methodology

For purposes of this graphics comparison, we took easily replicable steps on each texture resolution setting to ensure accuracy of results. All graphics settings were configured to their maximum value on the “graphics” tab – so that'd be “very high” and “ultra” – with the exception of anti-aliasing effects, all of which were disabled. Screen resolution was set to 4K.

We traveled to preselected locations and entered first-person mode. Once in FPS mode, we stood on designated “landmarks” and took the screenshots.

We face two issues with presentation of screenshots as data: They're massive, consuming large amounts of server bandwidth and greatly hindering page load time, and they're comparative, so we've got to find a way to show three shots at once. In order to mitigate the impact of each issue, we used a selection marquee of 546x330, selected a detailed portion of the 4K image, and then pasted it into the documents shown below. There is no scaling involved in this process.

Because file sizes were still an issue, we then scaled the finalized document into an 1100-width image, embedded below. Clicking on each image will bring up its native resolution in a new tab; no scaling occurred in the saving of these images. They're much larger images and will require longer to load.

The visual contrast is stark. Looking closely at detailed portions of the textures, we can see that even Very High and High have contrasting depths and grittiness in their display.

GTA V Texture Quality VRAM Consumption

To best demonstrate VRAM consumption, we built a delta value chart over the “normal” setting as a baseline. Note that VRAM consumption for texture quality at 1080 and 4K is the same, so the value does not scale with resolution (as other values will – like AA).


“Normal” is used as our baseline (0MB consumed), with “High” and “Very High” presented as deltas over normal. The VRAM usage is in MB.

There is a massive difference between “normal” textures (effectively used for legacy and 1GB devices) and the other two settings, but the difference is less noticeable between High and Very High – about 100MB. For most users, this will be inconsequential and can probably be left as Very High unless performance issues are exhibited (explained below).

GTA V Texture Quality FPS Benchmark

Using the same test methodology as deployed in our GTA V review – we won't retype all of that here – we tested GTA V performance using various texture settings. The rest of the game's graphics settings are as described above. Advanced settings were left to their defaults (off).

Performance was measured using FRAPS and analyzed with FRAFS, then compiled in a spreadsheet. We tested for average FPS, 1% low FPS, and 0.1% low FPS (effectively the lowest 1% and 0.1% framerates, rather than using outlier minimum values).

After uncertainty was instilled from receiving nearly identical results on a Titan X with a 4K resolution, something we predicted would bottleneck enough to show a disparity in texture resolution, we decided to also test 1080p. Little difference (within margin of error) was shown using the Titan X at 1080p and varied texture qualities. We then implemented our 270X – a moderate performer – and tested using 1080p with “high” and “very high” (max) settings, along with varied texture qualities.



FPS is effectively identical. What isn't identical, though, is the fluidity of gameplay. This is something we can't display as easily without an FCAT rig configured, something we didn't do for the purposes of this test. During 270X testing – where we exceeded VRAM capacity using forced texture quality settings – tearing became more prevalent in frame output and had a jarring impact to gameplay. In the event this bothers the user, it would be beneficial to reduce the texture quality (along with other settings) to lessen the requirement on VRAM.

Conclusion: Textures Have Small Impact on FPS, but Noticeable on Fluidity

The VRAM consumption is massive between the lowest and higher settings, but nearly inconsequential between the two higher options. FPS output is effectively identical using all texture quality settings with controlled values elsewhere; frame output exhibits more frequent tearing when using texture quality values that force VRAM consumption beyond the capacity of the card, but this may not be of concern to some less picky users.

The visual impact of texture qualities, however, is massive. Where possible, we would advice avoiding a texture quality drop as it will have a fairly immediate impact on visual fidelity.

If there is an interest / demand for the original 4K screenshots, we will consider uploading an archived pack for further comparison. Please comment below if this is of interest. There are bandwidth and load concerns, so we'd have to figure out the best solution and can't promise availability of the files.

New Realistic GTA V Mod with 4K Textures Looks Superb

Cernescu Andrei / 5 years ago


We’ve covered quite a few PC mods for Grand Theft Auto V over the last few years and the truth is that they’ve been getting better and better. GTA V arrived on the PC in April 2015, and two years later, we’re looking at one of the most impressive mods for the game so far, which is actually based on the Make Visuals Great Again mod. Released by DoctorGTA from the GTA Modding Community, the project includes 4K textures, and it impresses with a few improvements when compared to the original mod, such as time cycles, increased brightness for vehicles, graphic-texture files, and a fantastic weather system.


The initial Make Visuals Great Again mod for GTA V is also receiving some positive feedback, with players reporting decent performance even on laptops. In order to showcase the newest and latest version of the Ultra Real Graphics Mod 2017 in 4K, DoctorGTA has decided to put together a demonstration video, which apparently required six weeks to record and one week to edit. During this time, it looks like two of his  Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080s actually caught fire because of a design flaw in the cooler of the ACX 2.0 with two fans.

Have a look at the video below and let us know what you think about this realistic GTA V mod!

Best GTA V Graphics Mods: Our Top 15 Picks You Have to Try

GTA 5, back when it first released, was a major graphical fascination for everyone who owned an Xbox 360 or a PS3.

The game shipped with graphics that were only enhanced when the PS4 and the Xbox One dropped, and it made our favorite GTA title ever more beautiful. However time has passed and the expectations that we have for graphics are higher than ever.

But worry not! I’ve listed my favorite graphic mods that you can install into GTA 5 and improve the way it looks by a landslide.

Some of these mods are simply small graphical changes. But I’ve also decided to include them as some do work really well together(the colored HUD mod is a favorite of mine, I admit).

These mods are sure to change the way you perceive GTA V so stay with me and check ‘em out!

15. Insane Rain

Insane Rain GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

Some mods give you complete graphical overhauls. Others do wonders to change the way the map feels.

This does none of those two things.

It does, however, make rain look much more realistic. Which consequently improves the way the game feels when rainstorms occur and makes it quite a bit more immersive.

If you’re looking to get a basic mod in place to set the tone for the next few graphics mods that you’ll be downloading, this is one you want to try out.

Insane Rain is simple, easy to install, and changes the game for good. Sure it’s not a complex mod, but it’s super cool anyways.

14. Colored Map Icons

Colored Map Icons GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

Colored Map Icons does what the name implies: colors the icons that you see on the map. That’s it.

Why does it take a spot on my list, you ask?

Well, it makes the map look cool. Don’t judge me, I think it’s a great mod.

Jokes aside, this does add a bit more depth to the icons and it fully deserves a spot on this list. I know you’ll enjoy it as much as I do – even if you’re not one to open the map quite often.

13. Realistic Thunder

Realistic Thunder mod for GTA5

Check Out This Mod

Also known as Real Life Thunder, this mod changes the way thunder works in the game.

If there’s one trivial thing I didn’t really like about GTA 5 on release, it was thunder.

This mod completely changes it, and in my opinion it’s for the better.

This basically makes storms feel like real storms, as it doesn’t only replace thunder sounds with real thunder sounds but it also changes the way wind sounds while a storm is happening.

If you feel like GTA V storms aren’t immersive enough then please try out this mod. It’s going to make you fall in love with the game all over again – especially if you have another graphic overhaul installed.

12. Awesomekills Graphics

Awesomekills Graphics GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

Aha, finally!

This is the first graphical overhaul of the game that takes a spot on my list. It makes the game feel so much better by adding a ton of shadowing and lighting effects, which turns the game into a photorealistic version of the GTA we’ve all grown to love and adore.

I fully recommend you to give this mod a try. Maybe with others that add cars to the game.

11. HD Blood

HD Blood GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

Are you tired of smashing the skulls of your enemies and thugs only to watch the blood fall to the ground unenthusiastically and unrealistically?

Well, that’s quite a specific thing to complain about. But I did too!

That’s why I got my hands on the HD Blood texture mod. I have to say, it does give me an eerie feeling with how realistic it looks.

The madman that created this mod was probably browsing pics of actual murders to get the texture just right.

And as disturbing as that is, he did one hell of a job. I love this mod!

10. LA Vegetation

LA Vegetation GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

My God, these damn textures look so amazing that the mod makes me feel like I’m looking at a picture.

That, combined with the fact that I actually have other graphic mods installed. In any case, the textures of plants and trees look so good with this mod that it’s going to make you rethink why the devs didn’t just start with this.

The vegetation really fits what you see in Los Angeles. And given where you’re playing that’s basically what you’re looking at when you see Los Santos.

I have to say that LA Vegetation adds a ton of new images and pictures to trees, basically retexturing the entire natural look of the game. It’s a fantastic mod.

9. Mod Community Graphics ENB

Mod Community Graphics ENB for GTA5

Check Out This Mod

Now I love this mod because even though it increases the graphical quality of GTA V, it still feels like you’re playing GTA V and not some brand new game.

It’s like a graphical enhancement of the basic GTA graphics, and I love it.

It doesn’t make the game look as good as the Awesomekills Graphics mod that I mentioned further up in the list. But that’s part of what makes the mod so good!

You’ll find yourself in love with this mod if you prefer stronger graphics yet don’t want to lose the vanilla feel when modifying your GTA experience.

8. Colorful HUD

Colorful HUD GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

As I said in the intro of this article, Colored HUD is a true pleasure of mine.

I adore this mod, even though the changes that it brings to the table are as simple as it gets.

But as its name suggests, this mod only changes the way those gray dull icons look while adding color to every single one of them.

But this doesn’t just change the guns. It changes radio station icons and the entire grey wheel display too.

Super cool mod, and as simple as it is, I think it’s one of those things that you didn’t know you wanted until you got it.

7. Project RELOAD Texture Overhaul

Project RELOAD Texture Overhaul GTA5

Check Out This Mod

This is the graphical overhaul that was made to be used with Project RELOAD, but they’ve released it as a standalone version in case you want to use it without changing the graphics of the game.

It’s a cool mod for sure, and I’m sure you’ll love Project RELOAD if you look into it. This is basically a suite of mods that focus on different aspects of GTA 5. And the craftsmanship on this stuff is just plain amazing.

6. R☆hancer Photorealism

R☆hancer Photorealism GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

Much like Mod Community Graphics ENB, this one changes the way vanilla graphics work without losing the feel of GTA.

If you tried out the former mod and liked it, then try this one out too. I have a feeling you’ll absolutely love it.

And I’m sure you’ll have a great time rediscovering GTA V with this running in the background.

5. Project RELOAD

Project RELOAD base mod for GTA5

Check Out This Mod

Project RELOAD feels like the ultimate enhancer of GTA vanilla graphics.

And once again I must urge you to try it out if you don’t want to lose the original style of the game, but do want to change the way some things look. That is the goal of modding, right?

This is a massive project that includes the retextures that I ranked at number 7 on this list, along with a whole lot more. And it’s such a complete mod that you’ll struggle not to fall in love with it in seconds.

But note this is heavier than just the texture overhauls so maybe start with that one first, and then if you like it you can always expand.

4. GTA Realism

GTA Realism mod for GTA5

Check Out This Mod

So this mod doesn’t only change the graphics of GTA.

It just makes the game feel much more realistic by adding other mods that strive to make the game play more like a simulation of the real world.

You can see this one as a pack of mods that make the game look better in terms of graphics as well as in terms of gameplay quality too. So it’s a bit like a classic immersion mod, but focused on the GTA universe.

3. 2k Water

2k Water GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

As its name suggests, this mod makes water look much better by completely retexturing it.

This might not be a super complex mod, but it does quite a bit to make the game look better when complemented with other graphical enhancement mods. It definitely stands out on this list!

And besides, it’s easier to stay hydrated with HD water.

2. VisualV

VisualV graphics mod for GTA5

Check Out This Mod

VisualV aims to have GTA V look more like the real world.

It changes the way the moon looks and completely rewrites the weather as we know it in the base game. Plus it does a lot of other smaller tweaks that add up to one incredible experience.

Bottom line: it’s a fantastic mod that works hard in the background to make the game look and feel much better than it does in its original state. Well, at least in my opinion.

1. Natural Vision

Natural Vision GTA5 mod

Check Out This Mod

To start off: yes, the original mod is outdated. Yes, I’m including it anyway.


Because the newer version from 2020 is absolutely insane.

Granted you’re probably reading this well after release and it’s likely the newer version is already on your PC pumping up those GTA graphics for you. But really, this still has to take the #1 spot.

Natural Vision has been regarded as the best graphical overhaul of GTA V in the history of the game. And the new version was developed by some of the community’s most talented contributors so the 2020 release is clearly a leap ahead of an already incredible mod.

With these graphics we’re probably going to get as close to GTA VI as possible without even having to change the disk.
