[REL|V] FPS Booster


Recommended Posts

The Grand Theft Auto V FPS Booster is a batch-based tool that was originally designed for some friends, but I decided to upload it (and update it) in hopes of helping other players have stable frames-per-second.

NOTICE: The FPS booster was made help players get more FPS out of their hardware. This can useful on most computers. This includes an optional settings.xml and documentation to help users get better frames on lower end machines and to help them get a better understanding how the tool works (and how you can edit / configure it to your needs)

Use in Grand Theft Auto Online - This tool does not modify the game at all . it is entirely safe to player Online. This tool just stops unneeded services / programs and sets the game's priority to a higher setting.

For my on latest patch PC version when was tasting GTA V on my old pc - i have tweaked services ,system ,graphic setting nvidia - and GTA V is good optimized then GTA IV was (But on that same pc witch also get stable playable fps - whn i tweak game have much more fps)

My PC:

Windows 7 U SP1 x64

Core2duo E6550 2.53


GeForce 9500GT 512 DDR3


My pc have only tweaked services ,disabled ,scan hdd ,nvidia setting from quality set to performance etc - played on max DX10 support on on low and have 20-30fps depend the place and how much on screen render

If u optimize your pc and regulary scan ,clean ,defrag - u run all games on normal playable speed on new or also old pc no need soem programs to do that .

Prefer much more like is to boost fps option to disable trafic and peds and some post proces that u can do in all GTA 3D PC in configs
