Diablo® III

Hi, MBPr here, game unplayable lag.

The game studders and is laggy even at the lowest possible settings. I have updated to the newest firmware, etc.

I've tried running lowest settings, and I've tried hardware class "0" and I've reset my SMC.

Halp. The game goes from 0 to 45 FPS in pulses. It makes me nauseous in 20 seconds of trying to play. All these other people are having success running D3 on their MBPr, so I'm gonna guess it's something I can fix on my end.

I've reset the SMC again, and it seemed a bit better, but then BHAM, unplayable again. Is Blizzard ever going to address this?

Delslow, have you updated your rMBP's EFI firmware? It was designed to work in conjunction with 10.8.2 and later to alleviate many crash and stutter issues.

Firmware Updates
MacBook Pro Retina EFI Update 1.0
This update resolves an issue which can cause the system to hang during heavy processor loads, and resolves an issue where NetBoot does not function properly when using an Ethernet adapter.

Note: Once you install this firmware update, you should reset your SMC again to ensure a clean slate to work from.
