GTA 5 | PS5 vs PS4 vs PS3 graphics comparison, how much has it improved?

A video puts head to head all three versions of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) on PlayStation consoles and these are the results.

GTA 5 | PS5 vs PS4 vs PS3 graphics comparison, how much has it improved?

Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) and GTA Online are now available for PlayStation 5 and Xbox X Series X|S consoles with a limited-time launch sale. Rockstar Games' fans of the saga who want to return to Los Santos will find the best version to date on home consoles, but is there much difference compared to PS4? And compared to PS3? Three generations are put face to face in the new video of El Analista de Bits.

Since the launch earlier this week of Grand Theft Auto V for next-generation consoles, we have learned about the new improvements that this version has. Loading times have been greatly reduced thanks to the SSD memory of PS5 -the console used for this technical analysis- being in particular, three times faster than on PS4. Now, this video allows us to see a little better the performance of the PlayStation 5 version compared to the others. It highlights that the framerate "is practically perfect" on Sony's console, although to achieve the much-desired 60 FPS it is necessary to play in 1440p resolution instead of 4K, as many wished.

Ray Tracing in exterior shadows in Fidelity and Performance RT mode, appreciable changes in reflections, shadows and drawing distance... Technical changes that allow us to enjoy Los Santos with better visual quality than on previous occasions.
