Grand Theft Auto V for PC Frame Rate Locked at 23 FPS

I’ve been running GTA V PC on an nVidia GTX 750 Ti 2GB RAM MSI branded card in a Window in Windows 7. Whenever I ran the benchmark tests they would only report a frame rate of 23fps or frames per second (as shown in the below image):

The solution for me was to change the Graphics settings from VSync on to VSync off as shown in the following screen capture:

Set VSync to off

Set VSync to off

Thus I was able to achieve frame rates in the 50-70fps region:

Higher frame rate with VSync off

Higher frame rate with VSync off

If you’re tempted to try VSync half – let me advise you, don’t. The frame rate becomes locked at 11.5fps:

Painfully slow frame rate locked at 11.5fps with VSync half
