GTA 5 PC to Support Nvidia's Exclusive Feature

The GTA 5 PC version, which is yet to be released, will support some exclusive features from Nvidia. According to the GeForce page listing, this version will be supporting TXAA and HBAO+ or PhysX effects.

Nvidia's TXAA or Temporal Anti-Aliasing feature will help in the creation of a "smoother, clearer image than any other anti-aliasing solution by combining high-quality MSAA multisample anti-aliasing, post processes, and NVIDIA-designed temporal filters," says GeForce website. This feature improves the graphical fidelity of the game.

HBAO+ or PhysX effects will "add richer, more detailed, more realistic shadows around objects that occlude rays of light," it creates "incredible effects and scenes filled with dynamic destruction, particle based fluids, and life-like animation."

However, Gamepur reported that there is no clarity on Mantle support for GTA 5 PC. GTA 5 PC version is all set to release on 24 March, 2015.
