Stutter fest on high end hardware

Starcraft II Technical Support
Last played this game in 2016 was smooth as silk.

Now on a 8600k clocked at 4.8ghz and 1080ti this keep stuttering typically in battles.

playing solo campaign.

Which settings may help this? thanks.

cpu and gpu are both nowhere near been maxed out. I suspect may have frame pacing issues in buggy code of game.
Hey chrcoluk,

Have a look at the Starcraft II Performance Issues support article, and follow the steps listed (make sure to go through the Advanced Troubleshooting as well) thoroughly to try and improve performance.
Have a few seconds to spare? Let me know how I'm doing!
here is one solution that really helped me: open variables.txt and change this GraphicsApi=Direct3D9 to GraphicsApi=Direct3D11. after i did that, the game ran much better.
