The feature is available for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems, making sure that memory access is optimized (Source: DirectX Developer Blog). This is not only reflected in faster loading times and less uplinking textures, but also relieves the processor and can thus potentially provide more power.

Stay the problems with regard to GPU / VRAM capacity utilization, the colleague Nobbie describes in the original message. If there is also an update, we keep you up to date.

Original message from October 11:
After a more or less stable beta, the game seems to be peppered after the launch with client and server bugs. Apart from now daily server failures with rollbacks, stability is currently a big problem, especially if your Diablo 2 resurrected plays on a 4 or 5 year old system. The game collapses from many players without reason accidentally, whether you log in, plays or just idle in the lobby. According to player reports, Diablo 2 Resurrected also seems to burden the best gaming PCs with very high GPU usage / heating and VRAM assignment up to about 8 (!) GB. On the other hand, it looks like the game is only a few or no problems when you have a newer 12 GB graphics card.
Diablo 2 Resurrected: Booster and problem solver in one: With the well-known OC-Tool MSI Afterburner you can also underclock your GPU Source: external after several days research has been found that the extremely resource-hungry game of your system is not uncommonly so well Strong push that very probably automatic throttling (German throttling) uses, which can lead to the random crashes. Also, the interaction of VRAM, RAM and HDD seems to run out of the rudder at full utilization of the game. So the author has tried this tip to stabilize his elderly PC with GeForce GTX 960 and 2 GB VRAM:

Downgrade of the NVIDIA driver of version 472.12 (the current with D2R support) on the more stable 471.11 (22 June 2021). First uninstall the 472.12 driver including GeForce Experience / Shadowplay and Nvidia Control Panel (if installed). Then install only the 471.11 driver (without Geforce Experience / Shadowplay). Here you can search for the older NiDa drivers and download them.
Updates your Windows 10 with the latest optional Windows 10 version 21H1 patch. He fixes system errors, among other things. In Windows 10 you can access the upgrade via Search for Updates and download it.
Installed, if not available, MSI Afterburner and ident The GPU core clock (English Core Clock) by about -50 to -80 MHz. This prevents overheating / automatic throttling. Saves the setting as a profile. Remember that MSI Afterburner, if the app was not set on startup for Windows, starts manually each time before games and the set profile must be applied to the GPU. Here you can download MSI Afterburner.
Plays D2R in full screen mode and do not run any other apps, browsers, e-mail programs, etc. during playing, in the background

So far, D2R seems to finally run stable and liquid and liquid and liquid on the PC of the author with the standard video preset Medium and with deactivated AA (anti-aliasing). Even a stress test with several parallel livestreams ongoing live streams was successful. We will contact you when that changes. Much luck!

Note: This is a temporary workaround until the developers have solved the problems.
