How PlayStation 5 is going to enhance GTA V?
PS5 is going to feature pretty powerful hardware specs in comparison to PS4 so a boost in performance is very normal. According to the VP of UX design of PlayStation 5, Matt MacLaurin, Play station 5 is going to be like a mini supercomputer and extremepowerful in comparison to present gen consoles. As reportedly PS5 is going to be powered with;
CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2.
Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit.
Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s.
Internal storage: Custom 825GB SSD

The GPU also going to feature AMD RDNA 2 with 36 compute units capped at 2.23GHz along with computation performance of a peak of 10.28TF. Therefore, by default stuttering, and frame lag related issues would be solved easily.
4K 60FPS is going to provide the extra over the edge crisp in the game. Also to make the GTA V compatible with PS5 itself, the developers need to work hard on the game as well, because it is already 8 years old.
