Hi! I recently got the free GTA V from epic games and tried it for a few hours. I noticed that my game doesn't have a stable 60 fps rather, not reaching 60 fps. I adjusted the settings, turned every graphical option to -1 (From Ultra to High). I never encountered fps problems with other games on high-ultra settings such as Fo4, Skyrim SE, etc. and this thing is very problem unusual.

Unfortunately GTA V is a demanding game. Especially when you have settings like grass on ultra or high. My suggestion is lowering shadow quality to medium and grass quality to medium. Also turn down MSAA to 2x. That should improve performance. For the record even with my 2080 TI with grass on ultra I see FPS Drops into the 60s.

Also if you have single channel ram id suggest upgrading that too

OMG :eek:
Are you also getting missing graphics/textures?
That would mean that your GPU is too fast making your CPU run too fast on the main thread of the game causing stutters and bad performance.
Using vsync or otherwise restraining FPS could result in better FPS in those cases.
For the my first gameplay of GTAV, I'm getting a smooth 60 fps and never encountered a drop below 60. I am not using V-syng and I am limiting my total fps to 60fps only. It really is a mystery how did this sh*t happened for some reason, launching the game for the second time = lower performance? wtf

Oh! fair point. I'll try to reduce the shadow quality and grass to a much lower setting compared to before. I'll try to monitor if it will enhance my gameplay. Thanks! BTW, I have a dual channel ram both 16gb at clocked at 3200MHZ

Same CPU and GPU?
Also the beginning of the game is in very limited levels,the actual performance of the game starts when you steal repossess the first car with franklin.

Hi! I have a PC build that contains 1070ti as its GPU, Ryzen 3600x as its CPU, and 16gb 3200MHZ as its ram. I noticed that my PC is not using my GPU's full potential whenever I try to play GTAV. My PC is struggling to reach/maintain a stable 60 fps and I don't know the reason why. My settings are currently in High except for shadows and grass that are set to normal textures. My Skyrim with 2k textures + ENB runs smooth 60 fps and drops to 45 whenever when I am in lush areas. I really don't know why is it struggling to get at least 60 fps.

you can check the MSI Afterburner benchmark (somehow) here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TAcYutc_6qM-baPv9o8RqEpxeoDfHvA0/view?usp=sharing

P.S - Your answers will be really appreciated!
P.P.S - currently using 1366x768 resolution.

Hello, can you check the % GPU usage when you playing the game too? My % GPU usage decide whether my fps is low or high - higher % equal higher fps. Im having a gtx 1060 6gb and planning to upgrade to gtx 1070ti (like yours) but through your description its seem like its not going to get better. I doubt that this is all about game optimization, please let me know. Thank you
