I'm having some spikes while playing Path of Exile. The standard fps is 60, but when a new animation appears, my fps goes to 0 and the screen freezes. After a second (some times takes a little more) the fps goes back to 60. Does not seems to be a hardware problem and I tried to use the AMD optimizations, but it didn't work. Please if someone has a solution, I'll really appreciate it!
Here is my pc build:
Intel Core i5-4690K
SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 12 100362-3L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
EVGA 110-B2-0850-V1 80 PLUS Bronze 850 W
This spikes sometimes, are enough to kill me. I don't want to stop playing the game because of an annoying thing like this.
I remember downloading this game, I recall a setting called 'lockstep' which fixed the stuttering issues. Also have you opened the ports on your router?
Hope this helps.
