"low" fps in GTA V with low GPU usage

MultiDJRoni

Hey. 

 

I have the following problem with GTA V: It does not max out my GPU. No matter what settings i use in game, it just uses about 50% of the GPU and is around 100-110fps. I need at least 120 to use my monitor properly. 

My GPU is a RTX 2080ti, CPU i7 7700k (OC to 4.7 GHz, have not optimized that one yet). Latest driver is installed.

 

G-Sync is enabled, but that is not the problem.

 

Any idea how to fix it? The first few google results didnt help (Enabled XMP profile in bios etc.).

 

Thank you!

Is your cpu being maxed out? (check per thread not total utilization)

 

Nah, its about 70-90 peak

That does look like your cpu is getting maxed out, when running games your cpu wont ever usually be fully utilized so it looks like you're just held back buy your cpu.

shit. Is it worth upgrading? I dont really reach the FPS i expected from an RTX 2080ti in other games, but i always thought i was just expecting too much.

If so, what to? I usually run a few background tasks like wallpaper engine, Discord, Spotify, maybe a Stream while playing. Should i aim for a CPU that has more cores?

If you really need above 120, you could overclock to 4.8 or 4.9 and see if you get the frames. Or you could upgrade but you would need a new motherboard as well as something like a 8700k,9700k or 9900k which wouldn't be cheap. What is your ram configuration btw?

2x 8GB corsair ram. This one if you need more info: https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/product/corsair-vengeance-rgb-2x-8gb-ddr4-3000-dimm-288-ram-6187671

Increasing Graphics Settings in game will put more load onto the GPU and may reduce your CPU bottleneck, so give that a try. But yeah as people above mentioned it does look like CPU bottleneck. i7 7700k is just a quad core CPU with hyperthreading and your GPU is insanely powerful.

Sorry for the late answer. Would upgrading to a i7 9700k fix this? Or would it be better going for a i9 9900k? (Price difference in Switzerland is about 100$). 

Hope for a fast answer there is a sale going on ?

The i7 9700K will allow you significant more multi-tasking alongside games than the i7 7700K while also providing a boost in gaming performance.

 

Worth is subjective to need, but considering you already spend so much on a 2080 Ti I would personally go for it... just remember that the 9700K needs a Z390 motherboard to run, you can't repurpose your current motherboard.

What resolution are you running GTA on?

3440x1440 (Maybe for info: I have 3 monitors, while gaming i usually have discord and Spotify running in the background and i like to have live wallpapaer on which also increases CPU load.)

yup, thats what kinda was hindering me from buying one, but i guess you are right. also i dont think new CPUs are around the corner right?

Have you tried with only 1 monitor turned on, and maxing out the settings? It looks like your CPU can't handle all your tasks in background while gaming, you could benefit from an i7 8700K or an i7 9700K

i tried closing wallppaper engine and spotify, discord is needed however because obvious reasons :D

Have not disconnected the other 2 monitors. I also dont really want to hinder my experience in that way. 

 

I guess ill get an i7 9700k then, thank you guys for the quick answers. Have a great day!
