    I am curious to what others get on SC2 HOTS. Really have thought about making a benchmark replay and havent found one.

    My issue is that with my system I am seeing 15 fps when major battles happens.

    I have a x6 1055t OC 3.5
    8 GB DDR3 1333MHZ
    r270x 2gb OC 1100MHZ
    240SSD
    750W Corsair

    1080P HP Monitor.

    Would like to hear others situation and maybe someone can make a decent decent replay to benchmark off of!

    The game doesn't use more than 2 cores, you can't do much about it but tone some details down or OC your CPU further.

    Odd thing is that it only uses like 60% of one core and 30% of my gpu.
    I have been searching everywhere for a reason.
    I am gonna be using my buddies gtx 760 to see if it changes and also test with his.
    His PC is with an i7 930 stock with 2x gtx 760 in sli

    I use the "Unit Preloader" map in the arcade to do quick benchmarks. It was made to "trick" your system into caching as much of the game as possible by calling up every single unit and building in the game, with the added effect of being useful as basic benchmark since it is easily repeatable. Also, there are two versions of the preloader, one for HotS and the other for WoL.

    Heres a youtube video of what its all about:

    I have ran it a few times and yes it works well! maybe it should be used as the standard benchmark tool since after it runs once everything is loaded.
