free from unnecessary background running programs.
free from viruses/malwares/etc.
all drivers are up to date.
energy settings both for cpu and gpu is already on performance mode.
both cpu and gpu are not throttled due to heat.
another 1x8GB to have 16GB RAM running on dual channel mode.
an SSD, if you do not have any. SSD for open-world games (faster data stream) helps too on the fps stability.
try finding a secondhanded I7 7xxx compatible for your mainboard from ebay. I would try this as last option if those points above did not help you at all.
GTA V is quite processor intensive and gains benefit on having faster RAMs including dual channel setup.
I dunno about Ghost Recon Wildlands but it should be similar to GTA V I guess.
Those games should still run pretty well without big upgrades to I7 8xxx or Ryzen
hi. so my cpu usage in games is always 100% . I have an i5 7400 . I know it is old but my question is . can the ram affect the cpu usage.? for example if I upgrade from 8gb ram to 2x8=16 gb of ram . can it decrease the cpu usage>
Almost all games but the ones I face major problems with are : GTA 5,Tom Clancy ghost recon wildlands, Fortnite . what surprised me the most is that forza horizon 4 ( which is more demanding than all of the above) runs perfectly on 60 fps ultra settings.
