Horrible Game Lag

So I played During the last open beta in November and everything worked without a hitch. I didn't even have any disconnection issues. Sometime between then and now they've changed something. A PC that was once running the game on Med at around 30fps now won't even run the game on low. Walking and running have been made more or less impossible, especially so when it comes to trying to make a subtle change of direction in mid run. Also when I check my Processes while the game is running it shows SWTOR.exe twice. One running at around 999 thousand K and the other around 30 thousand K. In game latency usually says 85-150 MS so it isn't my net.

I'm in the exact same spot. In both beta weekends I played in I was able to run medium settings with a high 20 FPS average. I've updated all my drivers, but now I still cannot get over 10 FPS with every single things turned on low, off, or 0 (Including trees and grass).

Putting settings to high and turning off shadows has helped a lot of people, try that?

This seems to be affecting a noticeable portion of people.... me included.

Same problem here. During the beta, my system was slow but playable. However, now it's much worse. And I haven't even gone inside where it was much worse during beta. I don't know if I'll be able to move at all.

Please, someone comment on the changes. And will these be fixed? Something has gone wrong.

My system is better than the minimum specs but not the recommended. But it did work well enough to play during beta.

Same here. Horrible lag. Coherent movement is near impossible. Yet during both beta weekends I was able to play with everything on medium. What's happening?
