Additional Performance Improvements

performance upgrades are the best, keep them coming GGG :)
Video cards up to 8 years old should all support DirectX 10 and by extension, DirectX 9 EX. The previous performance patch added DirectX 9 EX support which is an improvement in performance for those that strangely dislike DirectX 11.

Just being "that guy" and reiterating that my computer handles poe with no issues whatsoever

I have it V-sync'd at 70 fps and all max settings.

No I dont own some $2,000 computer.

If you have $ for new games that u buy solely because you can get by with them on your potato desktop; maybe show restraint, and save that 50 bucks from Nana or whatever x-mas fun and put it towards hardware upgrades instead.

Hmm maybe I should wait with my CPU upgrade, at least until this patch comes out...

Isn't GPU usually the bottleneck?

Nowadays the CPU bottleneck is more frequent. Ppl usually have good GPU's but games with lot of stuff happening at the same time need a lot of calculating power as well to keep feeding GPU with stuff. DX11 client helped this a lot bcause it does utilize multithreading which spreads the load to all cores and the upcoming patch should improve it even further.
Effectively stating that those that use the Direct X 9 version without shadows will no longer have any reason not to upgrade to the Direct X 11 version with shadows enabled (unless they arbitrarily hate shadows for some reason). Performance will no longer be what holds people back from the switch to Direct X 11.

its not about performance - at least for me - but being forced to "live" with shadows opens up a demand of a gamma correction (at least), which the game also not offers atm.

add "--noasync" to launch command

I have stand-alone client,how to add that command to stand-alone ?Ty.

Make a link file to your client. In these' properties you can add the parameter(s) to the command line.
