Ever since my forums were upgraded to IPB3, I had noticed a definite abuse in server load stats on my site. It was getting to such a point where it was affecting the overall performance of my site and forums. While I had never connected anything with these high server loads, I have discovered that the problem was related to the forum skins that I was using. I discovered this problem upon installing a particular new skin and noticed that my server loads had dropped from 8-20 to down under 5.00.
I'm wondering if there's anything that IPS plans on doing to establishing certain code that won't be as memory intrusive for server loads.
If you installed a skin that increased your load (not sure how, but I'll assume your findings are accurate), that is an issue with a third party addon and not something within our software. We can only support the default skin(s). It's the same with modifications - there are some modifications that could drive your server load through the roof, but it's up to you whether you want to use it or not.
