Garry's Mod runs terrible on GTX 1050

Ok here is the whole thing:

I own Team Fortress 2, and CS:GO. These are both valve games right? Yes. I am able to run both of these on max graphics with 0 issues. When I play Garry’s Mod, I am unable to run a stable FPS while playing by myself. It’s strange. On max graphics, I can be inside smoke on 45 FPS, on low graphics, I have issues doing that at times. Is this just because the game is old and doesn’t work for newer systems? I love garry’s mod and I wish it would run better. In case you need my PC specs, they are below:

GeForce GTX 1050 4GB DDR5 RAM 3500MHz

Intel Core i7 7700HQ Turbo Boost to 3.8GHz

16GB RAM 2400MHz

I have my heapsize in launch settings set to 8GB and I haven’t seen any improvements either.

I hope there is a fix,

It all depends on how the addons are coded/the map is optimized. Keep in mind there’s also a lot going on so if things aren’t properly done it will cause issues.
