I'm getting 95-100% CPU Usage. Framerate around 20-30. Average 25 Fps but i get stutters and textures loads slow. I've already tried lowering resolution and other settings but i get same FPS. Is there a way to fix it or it's my PC ? More about : gta high cpu usage dual core bottleneck DM186 April 28, 2012 2:18:31 AM How old is your rig? Are you monitoring your temps?

Temps are fine. anyway, i have downgraded to 18.104.22.168. and installed iCEnhancer 2.0n however, i had lower FPS but it feels a lot smoother than Vanilla. Benchmark - settings untouched. Average FPS: 18.07 Duration: 37.51 sec CPU Usage: 56% System memory usage: 54% Video memory usage: 35% after tuning settings (disabled AA), FPS goes up is around 20-30. not bad for an old Low End PC. It ain't CPU intensive anymore. now it needs GPU power ____________ Also my CPU and GPU temps became lower than before.
