Origin PC Millennium: Grand Theft Auto V & Thief Benchmarks

Grand Theft Auto V
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series has been wildly successful for many years now, offering some of the edgiest story lines, game play tactics, and objectives the gaming industry has ever seen. With psychopathic main characters, you are left in the depraved communities of Los Santos and Blaine County, to walk a path few would dare choose in real life, committing nefarious acts, robbing and pillaging to complete your objectives. In short, it's rather entertaining that you're tasked with leaving a virtual world worse off than you found it, consequences be damned. We benchmark GTA V at 1920x1080, 2560x1440, and 3840x2160 at the Very High Quality preset.

Grand Theft Auto V seems to top out at around 187 frames per second, even if the hardware is capable of running faster. In this case, the Millennium was able to max out performance at all three resolutions—1080p, 1440p, and 4K.

Square Enix set the tone for Thief by saying, "Garrett, the Master Thief, steps out of the shadows into the City. In this treacherous place, where the Baron’s Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can trust. Even the most cautious citizens and their best-guarded possessions are not safe from his reach." The Thief series has been popular for years, not only for its interesting story lines and unique gameplay, but because the games have consistently featured excellent graphics and imagery, and leveraged bleeding graphics edge technology, like AMD's Mantle API, for example.

Wrapping up our gaming benchmarks, Thief ends the story where our graphics and gaming chapter began—with the Millennium taking the top spot at all resolutions tested. Even at 4K, the Millennium managed to put up triple-digit framerates, averaging 114.5 fps.
