    I run PC3 with triples. My system is not new and not as beefy as BigDad's. I won't say I'm getting super high framerates, but I am getting studder-less gameplay.

    Yes, PC3 is heavier on system requirements than PC2. Why? We at the consumer level don't know, but it was mentioned the lighting engine was re-written for PC3 so it's likely the changes that happened in that space.

    Why did the lighting engine need to be re-written? We at the consumer side of things, don't know. It doesn't really matter what the answer really is as we have what we have.. Whether it was a good decision to do or not, doesn't really matter as it doesn't change what we have today.

    Some Steam folks have had success with the following:

    Nvidia control panel -> Low latency mode -> ULTRA
    I don't know if it's a Windows 10 thing or not as my Windows 8.1 box already had this set. It's possible I had tweaked it long ago but it's not something I remember tweaking. Anyway, worth a shot if your system is not already set this way.
