CPU and GPU average around 20-40% usage
Ram 80-90% usage (maybe more ram?)
Disk at 40%

Does FiveM hate RTX Cards (even though RTX isn’t enabled & and should be able to use those cuda cores to increase performance?)

This is mainly due to the resources on the server… if you go onto the fivem test server you will probably notice its much better there.

As said above, this is mostly likely a server issue with poor code and unoptimised assets. Running the game off of a HDD probably won’t help with that

how does one do that?

well doesnt matther if the hdd is full of empty running the game and windows from an ssd is already alot quicker. But as said above the resources like custom building (mlo) or cars can also make an issue with your game. for example the polygon count in custom cars really ask alot of your card.

would a standard ssd reduce lag enough to make it near stable 60 or is the extra worth for an m.2

This isnt an issue with speeds of your drive… its simply the servers you are playing on, some will be better then others.


Is it the ram causing me to lag? disk never goes past 50%

(cpu & gpu at 40% since i enabled performance mode for them in graphic settings in windows)
