7 Effective Ways to Overcome GTA5 Often LAG on PC/Laptop Low

7 Effective Ways to Overcome GTA5 LAG on a Low PC/Laptop!
Some steps are quite powerful, in increasing the fps gta5

For those of you who are still playing GTA5 games on PC/Laptops (low specifications) don’t be discouraged. Because, there are many ways / tricks in order to maximize the performance of GTA5 on Low Spec.

And the methods and tricks are also quite simple which of course is easy to understand by most people (even laymen).

Want to know how?

Please read to the end.

Is it true that GTA5 is the toughest game?

Just yesterday (when this article was written), a Facebook friend of mine asked something like this,

“Bro, how can such a heavy GTA5 be strong on an old PC, bro?”
“Just up to 60GB in size”

He thought that “size/size“that is in the game, is directly proportional to how much”heavy/no‘ he in a game.

Of course at length, I tried to explain to him that “size/size“it does not indicate”how heavy“a game. (For example GTA5, 60GB = Super Heavy = False)

That’s roughly…

7 Ways “pretty” powerful…

For me, this is quite powerful (I did it myself)
For me, this is quite powerful (I did it myself)

Some of the tricks below might be able to help overcome GTA5 LAG on the PC/Laptop that you are using. (i did that too)

Good luck.

1. Use GTA5 Low Patch

Try to use the GTA5 Low Spec Patch on your Grand Theft Auti 5 game. How to install it, has been scattered on the internet, especially on Youtube. (There are many tutorials there)

By installing the patch, the image quality in the game will be drastically reduced. (similar to PS2)

And don’t forget tobackup” before installing the patch. (for backup in case of damage to game file components)

2. Use Game Booster

The function of this Game Booster, is tomanage” Which applications / services should be closed. Especially on background active applications that are not important to your PC/Laptop.

Please download on the internet, FREE!

3. Play while charging

You need to know, that when the charging process takes place, it is likened to a situation where the laptop you are using currently has a “resource“abundant.

Well with “resourceWith this abundance, of course the laptop doesn’t need to bother thinking about how to “save power” there. (Like a desktop computer)

Therefore, laptop performance by using “battery power“, of course it will be different from the performance of a laptop that uses “additional powerfrom the power source. (while charging earlier)

Or, maybe you already know this?

4. Change the power plan to “High Performance”

Almost the same as point number 3 earlier, that the laptop with the “charging”, then the power plan settings on the laptop will automatically change to “mode”High Performance

The use of battery power will be higher. (Therefore it is better while charging)

5. Lower the resolution to the lowest

It is clear.

Lowering the resolution of the game will increase the frame rate of the game, but with the consequence of lowering the quality/detail of the image in the game being played.

The choice is yours.

6. Change the game to windowed

At this point it doesn’t really have much effect on some game titles. However, it never hurts to give it a try.

Maybe it will have a big impact on the laptop you are using. (Possible)

7. Change preset to left align

This is also obvious.

Lowering the preset to the left (the lowest) of course will increase the frame rate in the game, with the consequence of decreasing the image quality in the game. (The important thing is Playable)

Which do you think is more important, Frame Rate or Image Quality?

I have a question for you. (for those who have played the game)

“Which is heavier, between Grand Theft Auto 5 (60GB) and No Man Sky (5GB)?”

For those of you who have played the game, you know which game is the heaviest and not “specifically friendly”.

Write your answer in the comments. (if you want)


In the early days of the release of the Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA5) game, the specifications needed were quite high, AT THAT TIME.

Well, things are very different from now.

The price of CPU hardware (4 Cores) is currently relatively cheap and certainly very enough to just play the Grand Theft Auto 5 game.

I suggest, a cheap CPU (Intel) but has a fairly maximum performance (according to the price) is Intel Pentium G4560.

Intel Pentium G4560 price
Intel Pentium G4560 price

The processor has a fairly cheap price, but it is almost comparable to the Intel i3 6100 CPU which has a price range that is quite far adrift. (Processor Hurray)


Remember, the points I wrote above are my own personal opinion. So it’s only natural if there are things that don’t match / agree with those of you who are reading this article.
