CPU might be either unstable or overheating.
GTA has no CPU control mechanisms, this is the OS or some resource management software. They should put 'prefer maximum performance' and active cooling in power management, although I think it still does it some because of CPU firmware..
One thing most people don't know about GTA IV/EFLC is that below all the pretty graphics is more CPU threading than any other game in existence past or present.. literally. This is why it's idiotic to compare it to anything..
