GTA 5 lagging

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The resolution I play on is 3440 x 1440.

CPU: i5 2500K @4.6GHz, 1.36V (80-85C top)
GPU: GTX 980Ti
RAM: 8GB

Mobo: Asrock p67
PSU: Seasonic 620W

I have set everything to full, MSAA x8, and VRAM usage was 5900/6100. The problem is that when I do faster movements, like driving a car, the stuttering makes it pretty unplayable. When I was @4.4Ghz there was a lot of stuttering even during the first cutscene. Lowering MSAA to x4 solved the issue, but there still is a bit stuttering.

1. Can the CPU be a bottleneck here? How can I check it?
2. Is there a visible difference between MSAA x4 and x8?
3. Can I play with i5 2500k heating to 85-89C? (@4.8GHz)

I would advise turning AA down a bit, because its definitely an overkill for 4K. The higher the resolution, the less AA you need usually. Your problem is most likely the low amount of RAM. 8GB while enough, is not that much for a game like GTA V. Also, are you running the game on an HDD or SSD? I experience stuttering and fps hitching in GTA mostly due to the fact that I run the game on the HDD and it cant keep up with loading assets fast enough resulting as I mentioned in annoying stuttering and slow downs in-between.

nah don't think so

not really at 1080p, maybe not even at 4k

Yeah, but that kind of temps might be bad for any component

IMO make up your own opinion : pick spots and make 8xmsaa and 4xmsaa screenshots, compare afterwards

You have a CPU cooler? 85-89ºC it's a little bit high, maybe you should change your thermal paste !

Turn off MSAA and your problem is solved, you don't need MSAA

You should really work on those cpu temps... I'm at the same clock (4.6, although you said 4.8 too) w/o vcore changed and run ~50c. Tcase is 72c. Get CPUz and HWmonitor and see what your temps and clock is in game...

IIRC I've got the game maxed at 1080 w/ 970... my guess is that resolution is a bit much for the 980ti with everything maxed. Definitely see about the above, though.
