I have 940MX GPU laptop with i7 processor and 16 GB RAM.
In this GTA V runs fine (30 FPS) at 1024x768 resolution and low to medium settings.
So I thought since GTA IV is 4 years old than this, it would have a little less realistic graphics and less resource consuming.
But to my surprise, even at lower settings (all settings and details are at their lowest) and lower resolution, my GTA IV struggles to get even 18 FPS. It is extremely slow as compared to GTA V.
It feels like I'm playing a latest graphics rich game on max settings. It's very weird.
I was even more surprised when I found some online YouTube videos about this game (GTA IV) review and they were getting 35 FPS on same 940MX gpu laptop with i5 processor. So I feel something is wrong with my game.
So is this expected behavior and GTA IV actually "heavier" than GTA V? Or could be installation problem?
