you could not run D3 on a cell phone.. not matter what you did to the game
have you even bothered to graph CPU and thread usage why playing the game? This game is not coded for AMD FX processors.
there are point where the GPU is waiting for the CPU to finish its thread. you cannot dispute this.
out of every test i've ran, D3 runs the best when i've got 6 cores clocked to 4.9 VS 8 cores @ 4.6-4.7
The extra cores are not used, you could even drop two modules and only likely see improvements as the game its self will use about 26% of a fx8350.
One core is always pegged 70%+ while 3 other are always under 15%.
