I've just come back to game after about 10 months out or so and its become unbearably slow for some reason. I have a reasonably high end PC and ran the game just fine (campaign map jitters ignored) on ultra settings before but now I have lag everywhere. This includes the main menu and even when I have battles paused. It literally takes a few seconds for the esc menu to appear. Nothing else is running on my PC and all other games are fine. Its the same on DX11 or 12.
Has anyone else experienced this or know a fix?

We found the mouse was the culprit. I update all drivers etc and it didn't fix. Game runs smooth until you move the mouse pointer at all, then it completely pauses the image till it stops moving. Change of mouse fixed it.
