Possibility to increase performance on GTA V..
Hey everyone, ((*I posted this in the Computers section,.. but decided to post it here as well for better exposure*))

For reasons explained below, and other technical mumbo jumbo -- Every bit of performance you can gain from your Processor Cores is paramount to, well, maximum performance.. (IE: FPS, Load Times, Stability, etc) -- and I thought I'd make a thread to address said performance issues/improvements as well as provide what seems to be a way to fix it (as well as improving your system's performance for games other than GTA too).

The (possible) culprit:

CPU Core Parking

In Windows 7 (and Windows 8) there's a built-in feature to the OS called CPU Parking; this feature is designed to balance the power load and decrease power consumption by your CPU by limiting core activity. For normal (non-gaming) use this has no effect on applications and performance, however for high-power computing as well as gaming (especially since more games are being designed for multicore machines) this is tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot; in some cases it's tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot and then dipping said foot in a vat of infectious bacteria. This is because physical (and logical cores if hyperthreaded) are parked and unavailable for use by multithreaded applications designed to run across multiple cores, and forcing a multithreaded application designed to run on multiple cores to only run on a single physical core causes a multitude of performance issues due to how threads are scheduled as well as how the CPU handles all of the extra processing (it can make your CPU overheat!).

GTA and many modern games (and other applications) make use of your CPU cores, and "threads" to spread the workload. So Changing these registry settings, service settings, among other such with a click of a button is super handy -- and you should see boost (if any are "parked") in anything that utiltizes more than a single core/thread of your processor.

Unparking your cores is easy, and it can solve a multitude of performance issues you might be having, you can follow the guide below.

How to Unpark your CPU Cores
  1. Download the Unpark CPU Utility and unzip it somewhere (like your desktop)
   2. Run the .exe file as an administrator (right click > run as administrator)
  3. Click "Check Status" and wait for it to complete (image below)

 4. Click "Unpark All" after the check finishes if any status reads "Parked"

5. You're done!

Now give GTA V, Photoshop, and any other games, applications, etc a try..   If your system handles things rather smoothly already you likely won't see much difference, though reliability may go up during stress/heat,.. So if you notice nothing.. it's normal Smile -- You can , at any time, re-run the program to put the cores/threads back to the way they originally were set up by your Operating System (Windows generally).

Take care,
