Last year I bought a gaming laptop, with DIABLO 3 in mind, I wanted a high end rig that was easy to move around since I travel alot.
The choice was easy, one of the best gaming laptops on the market at that moment was the
ASUS G73S -Dx11 with GeForce GTX 460M Cuda 1.5GB graphics card from Nvidia. With a Core i7. I payed 1803,- euros for this rig.
- Sidenote: Yes my drivers are up to date, Disk is defragged etc etc etc.
I have a high end fiber cable internet connection with 25/25mbit up and download.
Around 110ms ingame.
Every single game I have played on this computer runs SMOOTH. But Diablo3? It's the worst thing I have ever tried to run!
THIS HAS TO BE, a coding issue! From your side Blizzard!
I can't believe that this havent been fixed yet, I have spent many hours researching this problem. And all I can find is some poor exuses for a "workaround", that won't change much.
Until I see a patch that either A: Adresses the issue or B: Giving us an OFFLINE mode. Im gonna stop buying your products.
It's a bloody shame that you have probably earned over $1500 on me over the years, with World of Warcraft etc.
I guess hoping for a proper blue response is like waiting for a meteor to hit my head (not ingame) ;)
Been reading alot on the subject.
A few things i need to point out, this is related to moving your characther around. It will stutter with or without mobs around.
If i gather up a huge pile of mobs, and hold "SHIFT" while killing them, the stuttering dissapear,
Only to return again when I start moving.
I have no clue anymore how to fix this and im kinda sick and tired of waiting for a fix on the issue from blizzard itself.
They just released the patch and instead of helping 100's of thousands of players with micro-stuttering, they release the comodetys on the real money ah....
BTW i made a video of the microstuttering and i would like to see if its the same as what you guys have.
It happens every time when i use a skill for the first time or when i discover parts of the map.
Its not my pc because its a very very high end gaming pc.
Here is the video
I will see if i can fraps a part of the problem when i get home from work.
I have to say, the stuttering was abit less today than the day before. I usally end up ragequitting because it's getting so clogged up.
Two things have changed since last night.
1. New D3 Patch - But since the Blizzard Patchnotes is an utter joke, I don't know if something is changed.
2. New Win7 updates came last night, but I read that thet were secruity patches....
Fraps from tonight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJrEOcTQuwk&feature=youtu.be
I'm using a Dell XPS 17 myself (GT555m 3gb, 8gigs of ram, i7 2670QM) which runs skyrim, bf3, witcher2, basically whatever you throw at it. And when I say runs, it's either 1600x900 or 1920x1080 with medium to high settings, yet Diablo 3 is barely playable on lowest settings and lowest resolution possible.
Shame on you Blizzard. At least for now..
i searched the forums and found a fix
get a USB 2.0 or 3.0 put the whole game on it and play.
this fixed the shuttering 100% for me.
hope it does to you
