GTA 5 stuttering after few minutes of playing

I recently got GTA5 on steam and after playing a few minutes it begins to stutter/lag. It would run smooth for few secs, then lag, smooth for few secs, then lag and repeat. My specs are 8GB RAM and intel i5-7200U 2.5ghz turbo 3.1 ghz. Integrated intel HD 620 graphics card. I have no issue with any other games at high settings, just this one. I noticed that the lag gets considerably worse when roaming around quickly in a car and that's when the disk usage hits 100% on task manager.

Any fixes ?

  1. Two things:

    Your laptops graphics chip is way too weak to play the game without stuttering.
    Simply put, a HD 620 is not meant for gaming.
    Your stutters are normal with this chip.

    Also you said your disk is at 100%. My guess is you bought a cheap laptop with a cheap HDD. Unless you can install another drive, I doubt it'll change.

    I doubt it's my graphics card. People with my exact same processor and graphics chip can still run the game very well.

    It's something to do with my OS or the way it's installed on my hard disk. It might be the way it's paging.
