Limiting FiveM to 60FPS without using Vsync

This guide goes over proper ways to limit FiveM to 60FPS without using VSync or affecting other games.

This below methods work for Windowed Borderless and Fullscreen.

Nvidia Control Panel

As of version 441.87, NVidia has finally introduced a configurable FPS limiter to the Nvidia Control Panel.

  2. Go to "Manage 3D Settings"
  3. Select "Program Settings"
  4. Click "Add"
  5. In the window that opens, click "Browse" and navigate to the following folder:

    If you've installed FiveM to a different different folder, replace %localappdata% with your installation path.

  6. Select FiveM_b2545_GTAProcess.exe and click Open.
  7. In the Program Settings tab, you'll see a list of settings. Find the "Max Frame Rate" option, click the setting, switch it to "On", and input your desired FPS (Anywhere between 58-62 should be fine).
  8. Click OK
  9. Click "Apply"
  10. If you had FiveM running while doing this, restart the game.

    (copy paste above into your windows explorer address bar)
    If you've installed FiveM to a different different folder, replace %localappdata% with your installation path.
    Note: We have begun using beta builds, so the executable name changes with each build. It is always in the format FiveM_<buildnumber>_GTAProcess.exe. Check #announcements on Discord to check what the current build is.

  3. Select the Profile you've created for FiveM_b2545_GTAprocess.exe
  4. Scroll down and activate the Chill setting, set the FPS Min and Max to 60FPS.
  5. To Enable and Disable the frame limiter, you may press "F11" on your keyboard.
    Note: F11 is the default hotkey for globally enabling radeon chill
    this can be changed by the user under global settings -> hotkeys
