Diablo® III

Performance so far subpar

Was in the closed beta and me performance was better I believe. I could get around 75 FPS messing with Shadows and Resolution. Now I can't seem to get above 30FPS. Shadows are set to off and everything else is High, but when I set it lower it doesn't affect the FPS.

I have an Early 2011 MBP (first Sandy Bridge) and have upgraded to 16GB of RAM and an SSD HD. My card is the 1GB ATI one. Specs are posted below.

I do have it connected to a Thunderbolt Display. One other problem is when I click out of the game in windowed mode to another app, there is really bad jerkyness and the sound stops playing. I would assume sound should be playing at all times.

Thanks for any help or replies.
