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 contains its own memory, called VRAM. Now the default renderer of Path of Exile is DirectX 11. When the player runs out of VRAM, the game will continue to run, but the frame rate will drop. When this happens, the graphics driver will also move assets between VRAM and main memory, which will slow down further.
In addition to performance degradation, the game may also crash, crashing or falling frame rate is bad for 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 introduces other problems. Regardless, Grinding Gear continues to say that their engine team continues to work on better implementations to maximize VRAM. Although they cannot say what the actual changes or improvements will be, POE Currency should provide a better experience for many players.
Path of Exile started a fan art competition, where players and fans can buy Path of Exile Currency to create art. This is limited to drawing, painting or model creation and does not include video. Accept submissions until June 7.
