Are you noticing FPS drops or lags on your FiveM game? Maybe your game is even crashing? Oh, no! There are several reasons for those kind of problems. Our tutorial here will help you finding and eliminating those!
First off: Run a GPU-driver update
Please check your NVidia graphic drivers (or AMD drivers, if you have an AMD card). Make sure you have the latest drivers loaded for your graphics card.
Afterwards, check if your issue is solved.
Check your FiveM graphic settings
How old is your PC? Is it outdated? Think about buying a new GPU – for example a RTX 2060 or RTX 3080.
Open FiveM and click on Settings. Open the Graphic Settings and put everything to “LOW”. Check if this solves your lags.
Sometimes it’s a server issue
Have you tried everything? Sometimes it’s even a problem from the server hoster (owner), so that means it might be not your fault. Open the resmon console of your server (F8, enter resmon) and check if something is taking more than 0.4ms.
If that is the case, contact your server support team (server owner) via Discord and ask him to optimize the server resources.
Upgrade your GPU
Sometimes the lags come from a too-old GPU. Then all that helps is buying a new GPU (like a RTX 3080) or so – check out our GPU test here. You’ll get 60+ FPS!
Check out our Best FiveM Settings
We created a list with the best and most performant settings for FiveM right here.
It might be the case that your PC is too weak to handle FiveM. Check your CPU and GPU usage. But sometimes it’s not even your PC’s fault! It might be the fault of the server optimization.
If your GPU is very old, check out our GPU test here if you need a new GPU.
