The i3 (and i5 and i7) brands will lag.

4GB of RAM should be enough if you are not multitasking

The 200 series should be better than the 8 series

It must be the processor. Cities XL original had only 1 thread, Cities XL 2011 has 2 threads but 90% of the calculations/work is on one thread. It is recommended to have a 2-4 core (dual core if hyperthreaded) with each core having at least 3GHz in order to run without significant lag.

Workaround for the lag: exit the city, and then enter it again. The lag shoud reset (so, another hour of smooth playing). Failing that, exit the game and enter again.

And yes, the lag is currently unsolvable. Focus are working on it, but no success so far. Count yourself lucky that it only appears after an hour of play.
