As the title states, I've spent months searching and trying different things/"solutions" and so far nothing worked, I'm getting 150+ FPS in single player and under 100fps in online (60 or less in full public lobbies with 25 players or more) with low GPU and CPU usage (40% max, usually in the 30%'s), I've started experiencing these FPS problems right after the latest GTA update earlier this year, It was around 300mb and was pushed without a Newswire (change log) post and it was supposed to be something about Steam(?) idk.
Non-Steam/Social club version of GTA bought from Rockstar store directly
No advanced graphic settings
All settings set to normal and/or off, All sliders set to the lowest setting (aka lowest possible settings from inside the game)
Asus Maximus VI Hero (Z87) with the latest bios
16gb (2×8) 1600mhz DDR3 (Yes, They're installed in the correct slots for dual channel with XMP profile set in the bios)
GTX 1080 (Installed correctly in the first 16x slot with the latest drivers and stable OC, max temps are 75c)
Corsair RM850 (Yes, All the cables connected correctly to the correct ports and managed)
Samsung 840Pro SSD which hosts my Windows and GTA
Asus VG248QE 144hz 24" 1080p monitor connected via DVI to my GTX 1080
