GTA V Stuttering after a few minutes on 8 GB RAM

 Share

What's good. So, I bought and downloaded GTA V. Had fun playing it the first time, which it ran on 60fps (low settings), but I noticed fps drops became more and more frequent until there more drops than actual smooth gameplay. I watched YouTube videos with GTA V being played on 4 GB RAM smoothly. There were also some videos with 8 GB RAM as well that had no hiccups. Any fix to this?
P.S. I'm a Mac user using Bootcamp. Please no "get a pc" comments.
PC SPECS:
Proc: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470S CPU @ 2.90GHz   2.90 GHz
GPU: GTX 660M 512 Mb

RAM: 8 GB

 

thanks in advance

i think it's your VRAM that cause the stutter.. because GTA V is playable on low end 2GB cards like 750Ti and 1030..

Yep. 512MB is below minimum requirements. The 660M should have 1-2GB actually. If it only has 512MB usable, I'm guessing faulty VRAM or a neutered card that is literally useless for any game after 2012 or so.

As other have said its the VRAM capabilities of the graphics on that model, so in line with your request I will say this instead.
Get a newer Mac 😄

As above, your GPU is an issue. Also, if you're running on a HDD< you'll may have stuttering from texture/asset loading as it can't keep up.

I agree, but I am able to run AAA games, such as The Witcher 3, TEKKEN 7, and other games with 60 FPS+. I also noticed that in Task Manager, GTA V consumed at least 95% of the total RAM. Is this a problem

I am able to run AAA games with the same specs with at least 60 fps, though.

Not to say I don't believe you, but you're not running any of those games listed at 1080p 60Hz.  Not with "GPU: GTX 660M 512 Mb".  Period.

Additionally, to all that commented, I've seen videos of people pulling of GTA V with 512 MB VRAM and 8 GB RAM, which is similar to my specs.

Admittedly, yes, but I am also not running GTA V on 1080p 60hz. At first, I did, but when the stuttering started, I even went down to a 4:3 resolution, but the stuttering insisted.

When you say 60Hz, it is implied (since you don't explicitly list a resolution) that you're on 1080p.   You were lying by omission.  Please don't do that.  It's not a competition and we can;t help you if you're not honest.

 

That said, you truly need a better machine.  Or if you think it's RAM, get more and see if that fixes it.  It won't but you seem to want to argue that point.

What's the exact resolution you are using?  4:3 is an aspect ratio which is different. Typical resolutions in that aspect is 800x600, 1024 x 768,...etc. 

 

You might be able to run at a certain resolution, which I doubt. Otherwise, you will need a better machine as Dedayog suggested.

 

Not even making the Nvidia control panel to performance for the game would help much. You are already pushing 95%.

no it's not really a problem if you don't have anything like a browser running in the background. 8GB should be just enough just to run those game that you mentioned.. if you can try to lower those resolution again to 600p and set to the lowest prossible setting. unless you've done a lot of tweak in your game file, those game seems impossible to run on 512mb vram..

Good morning, good sir. I am confident to say that it's not my hardware, but Rockstar's fault. I saw videos posted years ago of worse machines running GTA V smoothly. The problem of memory leak in GTA V only occurred in recent versions of the game. To combat this, I downloaded a cracked version of the game (not to worry, I initially bought GTA V on steam). This version runs smoothly. Played for hours straight and probably only had a few frame drops.

 Do you mean in the opening menu?   I would almost bet you can't get GTA V to even launch with that GPU.

 

Edit:  That 660M, it can't be 512MB.  660 is a 2GB Card, so the mobile should be able to use 2GB of system RAM.  Which is the requirement for GTA V.    So with the assumption your original post has incorrect information... GTA V could be running and your issues are infact legitimate.

It is 512 MB. That is actually a difference I noticed with the older versions of GTA V. On older versions, though there are minimum requirements, the application would still compensate for lower requirements the user has, which in my case is the 512 MB GPU. On newer versions, the minimum requirements were made, well, required. On newer versions, the application settings showed my VRAM as 4GB, while in older versions it only showed 512 MB. This is probably where the issue is derived. Newer versions run as if there is more VRAM than there is, contrary to older versions compensating for the lack of VRAM.
