Intermittent Stutter / FPS Drop Issue

Posts: 394
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Graphics Cards: 2x AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series (Crossfire linked)
Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz
Hard Drive: 140 GB free of 240 GB (solid state)

I get intermittent stutter issues / frame rate drops where my game play will go from smooth, to choppy. The chopiness lasts for 5-15 seconds, goes away, then comes back a little later. It is very frustrating because NO other game I play on this computer seems to have this issue.

Here are some troubleshooting steps I have taken:
1. Made sure graphics cards were up to date
2. Disabled Crossfire
3. Tried every combination of D3 Video Settings, so please don't suggest something like this unless you think it will truly help (using the absolute lowest settings seems to help a LITTLE BIT, but doesn't solve it)
4. Tried using Razer Game Booster
5. Made sure NO OTHER program was running while playing D3
6. Made sure my Internet connection was great (always less than 80ms ping in D3)

None of the steps above seemed to solve the issue. Please can someone help me? Once again, this happens in no other game.

Thank you!

How am I supposed to get answers if my thread is so old without answers?

I get the same problem as you and still trying to find an answer. My gf has a pc that behaves a little worst than mine in other games but it doesn't have this problem I have so I think it's definitely a problem related to D3/AMD/Radeon/64bits OS... something around those lines.
