After Rockstar deployed a new update, GTA V on PC has become extremely laggy and can't be played.

Can this be solved?

    you should add extra info as: version of the game, specs of your PC, what is exactly happening in-game, etc... and sources you saw / things you tried to solve it – V4karian Apr 3 '18 at 8:19
  • V4karian is right. It could either be a hardware or software related issue. – GipsyD Apr 9 '18 at 14:46

It started with the last update, quite a few people have it. Rockstar support have told people it's windows 10's fault. Some people can fix it by removing their Social Club folder.

There currently doesn't seem to be a fix that works for me but you can try:

  • Removing your 'Social Club' folder.
  • Run under Compatibility mode for Windows 7/8
  • Different drivers new/old.
  • Various NVIDIA Control panel settings.
  • Monitoring CPU/GPU usage (It drops significantly during the freezing)
  • Taking back my GPU/CPU overclock (Ik it's stable, I was just desperate :P)

    What source do you have for this being Window 10's fault? – Frank Apr 3 '18 at 11:59
