Why is my CPU bottlenecking?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 510-p188a
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have watched many benchmarks on games such as GTA V, Fortnite and more using the specs of my computer. And in the benchmarks they all seem to be running fine, but for me I can't even hold a smooth 30fps in GTA V because my cpu is bottlenecking. Sometimes when I play GTA V I go into task manager and my cpu is at 100% and my gpu is at 12%-40% which makes the game completely unplayable. Any help would be really appreciated.


Thank you so much!
