"im running everything in safe for this testing"

Could you explain what you're referring to by this?

Marcoz,

The BIOS for your model motherboard as you know has a whole host of overclocking and tweaking options, way too many for me to try go over with you in here. I'd ask that you just use their "Auto" settings for everything right now.

Also, could you start up the task manager, then start up the game and get a character into town. Then alt-tab out to look at the task manager again. Under processes, locate the entry for Diablo III .exe and right click it. Check the values for affinity and priority. Is it set to allow all processors and "normal" priority?

afiinity has been on all cores since start and so have priory on normal..
think the "safe" setting i was talking about was the factory standards, but i will take a second look at my BIOS just to be safe =)

Marcoz ,

Could you see what effect if any changing the affinity to just core 0 has?

yes it was factory setting... reason i sed "safe" was that the button ses "Load Safe Defaults" in bios

changing the affinity to just core 0.. made the fps drop alot worse
Reply Quote
doing that also moved the max used core to core 0 even when switched back to all cores
EDIT: was core 7 before

Onboard Graphics: Integrated Graphics Processor
this can be disabled in bios
(i'm asuming that the Sapphire 7770 HDMR 1GB is plugged in to the PCI Express x16 slot)

I have noticed now that turning off damage numbers(normal and crit's) signiffically improves my FPS(from min 10 fps to min 50fps in singel player games when tons of mobs).
It's all about CPU usage.
This should help you and the QA department to solve this problem in a future patch.

Hope u find a solution =)

EDIT:my fps in town is 200+

tbh this is something i never really even considered as causing a problem, but it makes perfect sense. given enough mobs and attacks putting out these numbers they can be just as bad as the mobs and effects themselves in hogging resources.

in a video i watched recently they actually showed that the most limiting factor on modern PCs is the cpu speed. which is what a lot of people have been saying for a while anyway.

yes its important to have a good video card and lots of memory. however, the raw power the cpu possesses ultimately will kill your performance.

all this reminds me of a few things, but to make it short ill cut right to the example on this game. i recently updated my bios. my motherboard manufacturer of course recomended i reset all settings to default. i can see the logic there. dont want anything bad to happen by accident with whatever the user settings are. a failed bios update could mean no more PC.

so i updated and all went smooth. only i forgot to resetup my overclocked settings... lol. i start up D3 and the cpu is running at its base clock of 3.2ghz. immediately im like OMG something is wrong. this is because its all stuttery and not acting like im use to. so i press CTRL+R. low and behold it is running at 30fps. so i figure out that i forgot to reset the cpu overclock settings and get those right. its now back to my normal 3.8ghz and D3 is running good again.

moral of the story... if your CPU isnt as close to 4ghz as you can get it then your D3 isnt going to run right :P
