    Actually, I've decided Adaptive makes a good idiot light for too-low graphics settings: If the card gets bored, give it moar to do …

    Try lowering your OC.

    This driver seems to give me fps drops down to 20fps in Diablo 3 when attacking a large group of monsters. Not to be mixed up with the Vsync stuttering (even though FRAPS says 60fps), that's something else.

    Never seen this type of problem before.

    - The game is located on an SSD
    - I'm using the Max Performance setting in NVCPL
    - Deleted D3Perfs once
    - Disabled Damage Numbers, no difference.

    Did you change your sound settings? Try lowering the sound channels to medium (64) or low (32) which is the default.

    This has to do with the number of sounds played simultaneously, when there is a huge amount of mobs on the screen this requires alot of processing power and can cause severe frame drops.
    I've experienced this myself but this was quite awhile ago since I've been running it on low ever since.

    Someone else have low GPU usage and fps drops in SLI with Splintercell dx11 (at 3840x2160)?

    I got it in Bioshock Infinite along with a nv-something-.dll crash.Went back to 332.21 and everything's peachy.

    SLI with this driver stops working during gameplay...starts good but stops after a few minutes. I tested arma 3, bf4 and dayz sa.

    You are right, I increased the sound channels some time ago so I'll try to change it back. On the other hand, I got an Asus Xonar, shouldn't it be powerful enough to handle this?

    The sound is processed by CPU, and it will block the main thread.
    Except the AMD TrueAudio, most sound card DSP are dead.

    So are you suggesting it's pointless to buy a separate sound card?

    Not entirely pointless.The audio enhancement features your specific card is capable of will be processed by the card through it's software.However direct sound is always going to be processed by the cpu.The modern soundcard is not going help free up resources for your cpu.Cpus are fast enough now that you need not worry bout it.

    Thanks for the info. I have been using my on-board Realtek sound chip anyway, but always thought about buying a separate card because "it's one less thing for the CPU to do".

    It's been running fine here. No crashes, no slowdowns, no hiccups, no problems. Good set of drivers.

    That's interesting information and like Bjoswald wrote, it feels like I've wasted 60€ if that is the case. Could aswell ditch my card and just use the onboard audio of my Z77A-GD55? I solely bought it to make sure that I get those extra FPS that would normally be consumed by the CPUs handling of audio. Sure, the Asus card advertises superior sound quality over motherboard audio chips but I can't really tell the difference between them two.

    On a side note these FPS drops only occured (afaict) at Rakkis Crossing and Arreat Crater. Googling this brings up a few threads on this matter though none recent. Maybe because people don't change the default value of 32 channels?

    IF you want improvement over your onboard in audio wise, keep your card. Unless your using Optical into a receiver, unless your sending the functions of the card to your receiver. There will always be a need for sound cards if you care about analog audio quality or if you need a encoder for gaming over optical with muiti speaker setups.

    Yup, a good sound card will greatly reduce the ground noise caused by other hardware on Motherboard.
    So it is not useless.

    Rakkis Crossing is the same exact place I had the issue. Changing the value back to the default 32 solved it for me.
    However this was when the density patch was released and the mob density in those spots was insane, so even more sounds had to be processed by the CPU.

    I don't know if it's still related to this now, as mob density across all acts has changed again with the new difficulties in mind.

    Back then I came across the same threads when googling, so I made one myself over on mmo-champion and a member pointed it out to me.

    Diablo 3 is kinda choppy for me too. Just checked, and my Audio Channels are set to 32. I guess the expansion is ramping up the pretty to attract more players.
