Yo guys,
I just wanted to point out something I tested today.
I tried to run both steam and sepparate version from dawn of fantasy site, and the site version seems to run much smoother. Even though unit selection lag still appears, when I give orders to my unit and deselec them, game run smooth and nice, while on steam version I still have low fps even when units arent selected.

So I have a tips for players who experience low fps rate:
1. For those who have bought game from Dawn of fantasy official site, use this version for better performance instead of steam version.
2. After giving orders to your units, deselect them unless you gonna perform another action with them. This way unit selection lag won't be so painful for your CPU.
3. Using game booster application help a little bit. Also turn off unneeded application running on your system and if your are using windows 7, go to Control panel / system /Advanced system settings / performance / uncheck visual effects and turn on performance setup

Hope it helps

Try disable the steam overlay for DoF and see if that makes a difference. When running a benchmark against anything it would be nice to have a baseline as a reference point. What are your system specs, OS architechture, video card driver (version) etc.
To disable the overlay Right-Click on Dawn of Fantasy in your steam library and hit Properties. On the General Tab uncheck Enable Steam Community In-Game
