Path of Exile is about to get a turbo boost to its performance

Graphical slowdowns due to excessive particle effects look to be on the way out for Path of Exile, as the team is planning some pretty major optimization changes for its upcoming 2.4.0 patch.

The long and the short of it is that, depending on your CPU, these adjustments could result in up to four-and-a-half times faster performance when the screen starts lighting up with all sorts of spell effects, explosions, and corpse gibbeting. The team pointed out that as this only affects the CPU, it won’t make any difference for computers with problematic graphics cards.

“As you can see, without engine multithreading, this has resulted in a 1.9X speedup, and with engine multithreading on we are seeing a 1.5X speedup,” the team posted. “Both optimisations together give a significant 4.5X speedup in this scene compared to 2.3.0.”
