GTA V lagging/stuttering & Very low Gpu Usage

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone, I'm really frustrated right now because my gta v runs like a slow tortoise, I've tried almost all fixes that are available on internet. I've uninstalled my display drivers a couple of time via Display drivers Uninstaller and installed a fresh release but nothing :(. I'm getting this problem only in gta v no other game is effected. Here's a brief description of what i'm getting.


As my game loads and i join in single player i get 99% GPU usage but when i roam across city it drops and stays ~58-75% it fluctuates a lot. I get freeze for like 1-2 seconds and stuttering in every 1-2 minute. My CPU is i7 3770 oc @ 4.2GHZ, Cpu usage 45-60% maximum. Ram usage around 7 GB. CPU temps around 57-59*C. No matter if i lower or crank up my settings i get 50-65 fps. My specs are mentioned below


if i crank up every single setting on max, only then it stays around 97-98 % GPU but stuttering is still there and not to mention fps are same 50-65. I've turned off V sync in both game and nv control panel but nothing.


Intel Core i7 3770 OC @ 4.2GHz

Asus Maximus V Extreme LGA 1155 Motherboard.

Corsair Vengeance Pro CL9 DDR3 1600mHz

Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GTX 980Ti Windforce 6GB (Boosted @ 1500Mhz)

Seagate Baracuda 2TB HardDrive

Windows 10 Pro

Resolution = 1920 X 1080p

Platform: Steam(PC)


Note : Please ignore my signature specs these are outdated.


Thank u so much for reading all this, please help me this is really frustrating.

Everything looks fine, you should be able to run it.

Try run it at a lower setting, when I had my GPU that was a 980 TI, it had some sort of safety? Get MSI afterburner to see what temperature its running on.


Apart from that your English is fine.

And wow this forum is dead.

I'm having the exact same issue, but it's with a GTX 1080. It's not using nearly enough of my GPU and the clock speed is all wrong. On any other game, the clock speed is a constant 2100 MHz, but GTA V, for whatever reason now, is only using 1200 MHz. RAM, CPU usuage, and GPU usage are nowhere close to being full. Except, the real problem is, the game is literally unplayable. I'm getting an FPS of less than 20 on 5160x1080 resolution. This has only started happening after I just updated the game.
