Diablo® III

Rakkis crossing 1fps, on 670GTX

I used to lag on the bridge. I reduced my D3 sound channels from 128 to 64. No more lag on the bridge.

Diablo 3 doesn't support Crossfire or SLI cards. It will only use one of your cards.

That doesn't justify it being laggy only in one specific zone.

Are you using Ambient Occlusion and if so at what setting? Check in the Nvdia Control Panel. Its a fairly hew feature and Nvdia made a big deal how it improves the appearance of shadows in D3. Its a needless FPS killer.

as fas as SLi goes i can seperate anti-aliasing onto the second GPU in my 590 as well as a host of other multi-gpu options such as rendering successive frames on each graphics processor. all via the nVidia panel and handled in the drivers from what i can determine.

Might be more to do with hard drive load times than your graphics card.
Diablo tends to not load textures until you see a monster for the first time, and there's a crap ton of monsters on that bridge.

Still get horrible lag in Rakkis crossing.


I hear ya. I'm playing off a work station

I play with 2 GTX690s i7 and SSDs in a raid and I still get lose FPS.

Although if I just alt tab when my FPS goes down, it goes back to 60.

amd 1100t (6 cores) @ 4.1ghz oc'ed

crossfire 7950's

ocz flex ex 1600mhz ddr3 ram 7-6-6-24 latency

msi 790fx-gd70 motherboard

same problem. its the game engine, not your system. nothing you can do about it. the game engine is the bottleneck when these fps drops happen.

skyrim had a similar problem at release, bethesda quickly fixed it after a modder found out the cause of the skips..........look up skyboost to see whats wrong with diablo 3, same principle applies

use optimized compilers when you build your binaries blizzard. no use in having a cpu past 1998 if you arent taking advantage of the new instructions in said new processors such as mine

Could be your antivirus. Try adding diablo 3 executable to the exception list

seems like it's a nvidia specific problem?

running 6850HD here and i play fast chars like ww barb and tr monk, rakki's is an important part of my runs so it hasn't lag a bit

first update nvidia drivers,

try going into nvidia control panel and set everything to "application set" so that d3 takes control of the card

also running on HDD or SSD?

random questions,

what soundcard?
any antivirus?

I have i7, on board sound card, but a really good mother board that supports sli.

I tried turning on Vsync in nvida and off in game, no difference. \

However, reducing sound helped a little bit, however still stutters. Before it was impossible.
Now i get around 10 frames..

ps. i made my game really pretty with nvidia control panel, maxed everything out. Game looks really nice now. I will update my sound drivers n see if it helps

I run far cry 3, bf3 all on ultra without problems...
Diablo 3 runs perfect untill i go anywhere NEAR that long bridge.. I dont get 10 fps, not 5, but 1.
It is impossible to play there..

5 Mill to who ever helps me.


Had the same, tried EVERYTHING, but have it solved now...
Too bad im on EU servers :P

I read many solutions including MSI Afterburner with Riva tools to set frame limit to 60 FPS and what not, didnt help me a bit... played along with settings and so on, and finally found it for me.

Its the sound setting.... It's on 'High' ?

Put it to Medium, not Low (Low didnt change anything for me), Medium. See if that helps.

I have no more issues @ Rakkis, steady running at 60 FPS

Btw I do also still have this Riva tuner thing installed to run the game at 60 FPS, because it just runs smoother (no tearing). If it matters.
