[SOLVED] How do I stop my CPU Bottlenecking without spending a ton of money on a new one.

I have a AMD FX-6300 6 core processor from a while ago, but I've recently spent quite a lot on a graphics card RX 570

Playing GTA V I play on low settings and I get 20fps max, I'm confused as to why this is happening, CPU is normally running at 100% and GPU stutters going from 0% to 100% for a few seconds then drops to 0%

Any help would be appreciated :)

Hey there,

Sadly there is not much you can do. Your CPU is very dated and not very strong for gaming. Although, I would expect slightly more FPS even at moderate settings. There's always been a debate about the 6300 and whether it's a 6-core or 3-core. It's a 3 core (module) CPU. Each module has 2 integer cores that share resources. It's kinda like Intel's HT or SMT on modern AMD chips. So the 6300 has 3 cores with 6 logical processors. Some say it's not a true 6 core CPU.
