Super Low FPS

Technical Support
Hey guys just purchased and downloaded RoS with RoN pack and am trying to play but am only getting between 7-9 fps. Anyone know any fixes? It seems like 60+ fps is typical but with what I have the game is unplayable. I have an Intel Celeron CPU N2840 @ 2.16 Ghz 4GB ram 64 bit.
Intel Celery chip. Not exactly a prime choice to play games on.

Edit:
Good lord, second gen ATOM based low power mobile chip! Double Ugh!

Don't tell me it has an integrated video card from Intel built in as well?

Ugh.

Not enough CPU, barely enough memory (try running the 32bit engine instead) and potentially no dedicated GPU.

Set the game at lowest settings (except textures) and see if it helps. But honestly you don't have enough computer to run it smoothly as you would like.

Just saying.

Game on.

Intel Celery chip.

Celery chip hey?
You should try potato chips instead of celery chips. Much yummyer! :P

To be honest, celeron grade cpu is the technology of last centenary.

To be honest, celeron grade cpu is the technology of last centenary.

However, his celeron is from 2014 "era", and the recommended from the diablo 3 site is an core 2 duo, which is from early 2008.
The N2840 is better than both (Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5600+ 2.8GHz)
His Celeron (N2840) should be able to play the game at "regular" settings..

I got frame drops while playing on "windowed" mode, but on fullscreen is very smooth.
Forgot to include the support article for performance issue. Here it is:

The reqs usually assume a dedicated cpu and gpu. His celery is doing both jobs.
I forgot that Intel still made Celerons. Not exactly a good choice for CPU when it comes to gaming, especially if the system doesn't have a GPU of some sort besides the Intel one. The 4GB of RAM isn't much either if you're running Windows 10 on that.

Even if you drop everything to the lowest they go (including resolution), I don't think you'll squeeze much performance out of that. I'd avoid Act 5 if I were you, that place is a bit rough on my 2nd Gen i5 laptop with 8GB RAM with a Radeon GPU.

Better is relative.

I have used all the above. And quite frankly, the N2840 is a 7watt turtle. The specs look good on paper, but in reality its a different matter. Not to mention Atom based systems are not designed for performance, they are designed for power savings and mobile computing. Essentially they are trying to play D3 on a netbook, if that helps.

Just like "can run" is also relative, i bet it can run, no idea if is playable.

I know its just 7watt, but that does not mean much if we look at cpu history.
Bunch of newer cpus have half TDP older cpus have, even if they perform better..
I checked cpuboss before posting and it has better ranking than the minimum required for this game, and partially the recommended values..
Except if the system requirements page is outdated, as this game have been patched several times since that.

And that means nearly diddly squat vs real world practicality.

Not sure why its something to argue at this point anyway. Chip is still crap. Still not going to perform well playing this game, especially with the amount of memory they have and an integrated video design.

Best they could hope for is to run the 32 bit engine, lower the graphic settings and maybe they will get a best of 30fps in spots. And that's assuming they aren't running other crap in the background, etc.

Anyway. It is what it is. And with the Atom architecture its probably a mini-laptop/netbook/mini-pc with no upgrade options anyway that originally shipped with Windows 7 or 8.

With that in consideration, an older core 2 duo with a full architecture, dedicated GPU and such WILL outperform it. I know this as fact having worked with and built both.

Game on.
7watt, ouh. I think 7megawatt be better but it's fantasy. Celeron. Celeron? For me Cely is smothes smotly smot :)

Celeron's better than Core2.Look at the screen.Freaking out.

There's your Celeron N2840 somewhere.In fact - it is a very dead stone,suitable only for typing and browsing the Internet.

We use what we have. Checkout the D3 performance guides. The question is whether game will be fun for you (playing on current computer). With character still at level 5, you should consider requesting a D3/Ros refund.

At so like. We want to say so this 60 fps or my'go-dly this 60+ is better the 30 fps?

- This is technical forum.

So what. You really want me say what is this 60 or 60plus as better the 30 fps? Better in what? Of course if you want looks in future beforing your face at the radiance screen. So yeah. It's cool.
