I NEED HELP AND AM VERY CONFUSED!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there guys. I need answers as to what the problem in my setup is
Specs:

Processor: i7 7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz (8CPUs)

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB

RAM: 1x8GB 2133MHz RAM

 

I just got GTA V and i was expecting very high fps with this game, as i researched on online benchmarks. But when i played it, my fps was just between 30-60 fps. Sometimes, it even goes to the near 20s if there's so much going on in the game like for example im driving around the city. I researched online benchmark of the said graphics card in the game Dota 2 and it showed fps up to 150 fps with all the settings in very high. But when i played it in my setup, i only get 100fps with very high settings. I'm really sad because i don't want to think that i wasted my money on a very expensive graphics card and dont get the ideal results.

You probably want to use a second RAM stick to get dual channel support. That should give you a bit of a performance boost:

(~edit: Also that i7-7700 is a 4C/8T CPU, not an eight core CPU)

so if i do opt to get a new processor with more cores and still have 1 stick of RAM, i could get better fps? on the other hand, if i opt to just add another stick of RAM and stay with my current processor, should i get a stick of RAM with higher speed or does that make a difference?

I'm not saying you CPU is the issue, just that your info above is not quite correct.

 

Simply getting a second stick of RAM would be the easiest and also probably cheapest option. As you can see in the video is should give you a fair boost.

 

The second stick should be the same speed as the first one. Your computer is going to run both at the same speed, so a faster stick doesn't make much sense unless you want to exchange both.

oh sorry for misunderstanding sir. so just to be clear sir, the cpu and gpu are not the issue in my setup?

I'm not a knight, no need to call me a sir 😅

 

I don't think either of these should be the issue. You could try to use MSI Afterburner to monitor CPU and GPU while gaming. If your CPU (or one of its cores) is constantly at 100% and your GPU is say 75% or below, then you're possibly looking at a CPU bottleneck. I'd still get a second stick first to see how much things improve before investing into more costly stuff.

 

Afaik when you're playing online the quality of your connection can also have an impact on the frame rate in GTA.

sorry about that haha :D

thats also another problem of mine. i downloaded nzxt cam to see the cpu and gpu usage during the game and i noticed that my cpu usage is around 50% average and my GPU usage is at 0%. i tried maxing out all the graphics in the game but the gpu usage would still be at 0. is that still considered a cpu bottleneck?

Nah, more likely the software can't properly read the gpu load, because 0% should be pretty much impossible.

 

~edit: Something I just thought of: The i7 has an iGPU... have a look in your BIOS, check whether it is disabled (it should be). If not... it's possible the game is running on the wrong (much less powerful) GPU.

no dude seriously, GPU usage is at 0% but the temperature reaches up to 70. want me to send you a pic of it?

I believe you :) I'm just saying the tool probably isn't reporting it correctly. Maybe try MSI Afterburner, should work just fine with non-MSI cards. As I said in my edit above... it's possible you're running on the iGPU. Check that it is disabled in BIOS.

hey man, i just finished installing msi afterburner and i tried it out in gta V. here are the results man. as you can see it still runs on 42 fps and the gpu is at 83% usage :(Untitled.thumb.jpg.439932e1c345da6fa0411c86be882f5c.jpg
