Diablo® III

Source of the Lag

Posts: 97
Just curious.

I've got an i7 950 Quad, Radeon 6950, 12gb of ram and I've already turned the graphics down to medium.

I still get lag spikes here and there and on certain parts of the maps.
Is it due to Blizz's decision of making too much stuff server-side?

Cause I don't think it's my rig.

put the game on a ssd or thumbdrive, it will resolve resource loading lag.

It's most likely your internet connection.

My game IS on an SSD already.
And it's not my internet.

I game a lot, and play a lot of FPS and some RTS as well.
There are never spikes from my end.

It's more of a general question to you guys.

Is this common? and is it because of the Server-side decision?
My game runs quite well 97% of the time.

The remaining 3 has instances where the game goes from "non-snappy" (D3 isn't snappy), to delayed registering of commands.
And then the major 10-second screen barely moves kind of spikes.

loading of asset stutter, a serious problem that has been around since launch, without a proper solution, probably never will be.
