In order to keep the framerate at a moderate level we use maximal details, but restrict the draw distance to 50 percent - a value normally intended for cards with 1,024 MiByte VRAM. As our [Register or Login to view links] reveals, GTA 4 primarily needs a fast CPU.

To check the performance of the graphics cards we use our Promenade benchmark. It challenges the system with many passengers and heavy traffic as well as a huge range of visibility and is quite representative for GTA 4 because you spend a lot of time in the city.

305w ago - A Spanish magazine recently got their hands on Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS and discussed map details.

The districts that appear are: Dukes (Queens), Bohan (Bronx), Broker (Brooklyn) and Algonquin (Manhattan).

The only neighborhood from GTA IV that doesn't appear is Alderney (Jersey City).
