High CPU Usage since Patch 1.08

  • My CPU usage became 90-100 now when playing diablo after the recent patch (patch 1.08).

    This is causeing severe intermittant gameplay lag.

    It is not network related.

    It is not being caused by any startup processes or other applications.

    I am at a loss other than there is an issue with the Diablo client.

    Is there any diagnostic I can run on the client to look for errors?

    Any suggestions would help.
    Is anyone lese experiancing this.

    Thanks
  • MaxCarnage,

    Seems like it pretty much has to be something on your computer. See this other thread where I've been trying to help another user with a similar issue. In it, I discuss my current cpu usage numbers as a comparison.

    Can you start by post your dxdiag info please? You can find this information in the Direct X Diagnostic Tool:

    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type in: dxdiag (In Vista, type dxdiag in the search field)
    Hit Enter or OK

    Click on the Save All Information button at the bottom, and create a dxdiag text file, and copy and paste it ALL here.

    Could you also post your D3Prefs.txt file? It's located in the My Documents\Diablo III folder.
