So just to verify that I'm not having an OS or driver issue, I reinstalled OS, reinstalled PoE, made sure all drivers were up to date and performance is still terrible. How can I run Witcher 3 at ultra settings, but not PoE at its max? It feels to me like this is all a cpu issue, and I notice that PoE only uses the first 4 out of 6 cores on my cpu. Even then the cpu usage across cores is very lopsided, with cores 1/3 seeing minimum usage, while cores 0/2 see the most.

Bumping this thread, probably to no avail.

Previously I was running PoE on an AMD Phenom X4, Radeon 7850 2GB and 4GB of RAM (DDR2 0.0), with everything maxed out and had only minor issues here and there. But now... I just upgraded my machine to an AMD FX 6300, Radeon R9 380 4GB and 16GB system RAM, and the lag is unreal. Perandus boxes drop my FPS to single digits, the lava traps in the Labyrinth also drop me to single digits, and regular gameplay sees lock ups on a regular basis. Note that I am running 2 SSDs (OCZ Vertex and Sandisk Extreme), and I'm hardwired on a 200MB+ connection. Literally every other game runs max settings without any issue, but PoE is so bad now.

It's pretty sad that my machine is nearly twice as powerful as it was before, but somehow my performance has degraded horribly in this game. I'll try some tweaks and what not, but just wanted to vent my frustration at this.

I had plans this weekend.... now those plans are being superseded by weekend long PoE play...
