It seems that the path of exile is about to undergo major changes. This is about increasing the use of video memory in games. If it goes well, the change should reduce the chance of a drop in frame rate. Now, before you get too excited, it doesn't look like it will come anytime soon. Developer Grinding Gear Games revealed in a post that it was initially planned to be included in the next engine patch, which will be released sometime in June or July. However, Grinding Gear said that they are still quite dissatisfied, especially in the current situation, so they may deploy this feature in the near future.
As a quick background, the graphics card has its own memory, called VRAM. The default renderer for the Exile Path is now DirectX 11. If the player runs out of VRAM , the game will continue, but the frame rate will drop. In this case, the graphics driver will also move assets between VRAM and main memory, which may cause further slowdown.
In addition to performance degradation, the game can also crash, and crashes or frame rate drops are detrimental to the game. To be fair, the developers stated that they added a system to ensure that VRAM usage is kept to a minimum. Although this also brings other problems. Even so, Grinding Gear continues to say that their engine team continues to work on better implementations to maximize VRAM. Although they cannot tell what the actual changes or improvements are, it should provide a better POE Currency for many players.
The Path of Exile started a fan art competition. Players and fans can create art based on anything introduced in the game, and Buy POE Orbs to experience more exciting content. This is limited to drawing, painting or model creation and does not include video. Accept submissions until June 7.
