Before, I had fps drop from 200 down to 15. Thank you. This actually works
(Have tried both methods, one with the simply installing d3 on a SSD and the whole ms-dos pathchanging mpQ
I have yet to test this from a thumb drive (seem asinine that slow, USB drives would have a performance benefit), but I currently run D3 (and several other games) from an intel SSD. D3 is the only game to have stuttering and massive performance issues - and this only started occurring after 1.05. If the following rig is unable to run D3 smoothly...I don't know what the issue is:
Nvidia GTX 660Ti
My next step is to try to run it from my WD Black drive, but this is ridiculous.

08/21/2013 07:33 AMPosted by NecromaniacI just bought an SSD, more or less specifically for this game and while it did iron out the "first few seconds of a new game" lag, I am still experiencing extremely low frame rates with 4 players in areas like fields/hollow etc. We are talking 60FPS in town 12FPS or less fighting mobs. The game runs so terrible it is almost unplayable.
My platform (motherboard) is a bit older and is only SATA2, so my SSD is currently only running at half of its capable speed (250MB/s) instead of 550MB/s. But all my other components are up to date and SHOULD be overkill for a game like this:
ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe Mobo (the culprit)
AMD Phenom II X4 830 (OC'ed to 3.4GHz)
4GB DDR2 1066 RAM
EVGA 560ti x2 SLI
Corsair 750W PSU
Windows 7 64bit
