After the patch today i noticed that i seem to be having fluctuations in my FPS , it already starts in act I without any mobs on the screen , its not "lag" as in that it is choppy all the time (you know graphic settings to high) , its more like you walk a couple of sec , then it stutters for a minor second and then its fine again , this can happen once a couple of minutes or a couple of times in a row.
It tends to happen just as im attacking mob,however it can also happen when just walking about.
My system itself (i know its not the best ;p but i had no issues whatsoever before patch , exept that my fullscreen-windowed mode didnt want to minimize or sometimes locked up on the foreground [no application would show in front of diablo 3 unless i moved it to monitor #2]) :
Ati HD4600 1gb version - stock - Latest ati drivers aswell.
Windows 7 x64 ulti , 4gb of mem.
Dual monitor setup
6TB of hdd space. Multiple HDD's
Diablo 3 settings didnt change and used to work fine , but ill list em
1920x1080 16:9, mfps 150 , max b.fps 60 , tex high , shadow med, physics high , clutter medium and no AA or low-fx selected.
Running atm :
ESET NOD32 security
Perfmon & taskmon
Analyse thingy from myself (or how i see it) :
Diablo 3 takes around 800-900MB committed memory , around 40% of my CPU aswell , my system resources show that there is still around 1.5gb memory free to commit, Both dont increase at all during heavy combat etc (processor jumps to perhaps 50% but nothing serious).
I checked fragmentation on my 15000 rpm raptor hdd that has my diablo and warcraft installation , all seems to be well (read / write speeds of 80-90mb/s. for all types of data 2/4/8/12/64 etc) I check wow and can play with 60-90 fps no issues. I also checked in perfmon and taskmon how much my drive was being utilized (the hdd) and that was less then 20% of its capacity , also checked for faults on it with spinrite and that passed the test with flying color.
could it be that the new patch changed something that causes me to have these hickup's ?
considering its purely this game since the patch.
Any advice dear blue's?
p.s i did notice my 100mbit line is saying i have a latency of 252 ms in diablo and a 19ms in wow. (home/world) , dont think that should affect it thou.
