    I have a mid 2014 rMBP 15', base model.
    Therefore it has Iris Pro graphics, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD and a Quad 2.2 GHz i7.
    I am currently using Bootcamp to dual boot Windows 8.1, and am wondering if I should buy GTA 5 on Steam. Will it be able to achieve medium-level graphics at a stable 30 FPS? What about resolution?

    I currently own the X360 and XOne versions of the game, and the reason I want to get it on my MBP is so I can game while travelling etc. GTA 5 is my favourite game and basically the only game I play nowadays.

    Please let me know what I can expect and how the game will perform in comparison to the two Xbox versions!

    Well, I'm not sure if this will help but I loaded GTA V on my surface pro 2 (that I am selling for the 2015mbp 15) and it was rough. It had 4200 graphics so yours would be a little bit faster but it could pull a steady 25FPS and the lowest possible settings and resolution. It was playable, and at 10 inchs it didn't look that bad, but GTA V is a resource hog.

    Hmm... I'm wondering if 30 FPS with a 1440x900 resolution (exactly a quarter of the pixels 1:1 scale) on medium graphics would be possible...

    I've seen that video, but it doesn't show any actual gameplay and doesn't specify which exact graphical settings are being used! :confused:

    GTA has always been a resource hog ever since it made the jump to 3D (though IV was the WORST offender).

    Here's what GTA V looks like on the Iris Pro 5200 on a Mid-2014 MBP.

    It will be playable, but at a PS360/sub level.

    If you're fine with sub 30fps and low/normal then it should be fine. If you can't handle that (I personally can) then I'd recommend upgrading or dropping the $$$ on a console/Steam Machine.

    Hehe, few months ago I built myself a GTX 980 Ti gaming beast PC, so I don't need to worry about it anymore. 4K @ 60fps!
