Diablo® III

FPS SOLUTION

I've been reading through a ton of threads on here and tried nearly everything to make things work on my Alienware M11x laptop R3 and finally found what worked for my computer. It seems my CPU is not working at full capacity when playing the game so, following advice I found in another forum, I downloaded Throttleshop to stop my CPU throttling.

Sure, enough, my computer wasn't using even half its full CPU capacity, so I set the multiplier in throttleshop to 20 and boom, 0 lag online with another player. My game was finally run at the high settings it should at 50-60 fps at almost all times.

So for anyone having problems with a dual-core or i3,5,7 CPU, try throttleshop and change the "set multiplier" option until your CPU is using its true capacity. Click turn on to make the program work and hopefully things work out for you too.

I feel like gamebooster tries to do the same thing also if you want an alternative, I'm not sure if any one has tried it for D3 yet

since gamebooster is pretty popular and CNET seems to recommend it, I'm gonna try it out.

This DEF works... both of them. I have a core i-5 with the Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics card. I'm not hitting 60fps, but staying steady at about 40 on 800x600, and 30 at 1280x720.... and I wouldn't be surprised that once D3 gets patched up a bit this'll improve.

But most important - there is next to ZERO stuttering! Maybe .2 sec stutters when in the dead middle of a battle... but it feels and acts more like traditional lag when your proc is trying to do a ton of stuff.

I used both ThrottleStop and GameBooster unsuccessfully... :(
Glad it's working for some, though!!
