Yesterday, I was pulling somewhere around 94 to 104 FPS in Bugtown on Balmorra. Today, after this patch, I am hovering around 44 to 50 FPS in the exact same location.

There are other people posting in the General Discussion forum with this same complaint as well. Is this a known issue at the moment? If not it would be nice to have this issue looked into


System info:

Intel i7 2600k
8 gig ram
Evga Geforce GTX 560 Ti 448 core
Win 7 Home Premium
Corsair Force GT SSD 128gig

I am also seeing a massive frame rate drop. Although I am on a low end machine, the game was still very playable *before* the patch. Now it is borderline unplayable. Framerate is now below 20 fps consistently and often dips to unplayable levels...FIX!!!!

Update: Believe it or not, updating my drivers worked...I know that isn't working for most people, but it did for me. I am playing on a POS low-end machine (ACER laptop) with a NVIDIA GT130M....I installed the drivers available from the ACER website (I"m sure they are nowhere near as current as the latest NVIDIA reference drivers), and my framerate was back to normal. According to the NVIDIA control panel, the version of NVIDIA drivers installed is: 187.71. DxDiag reports the drivers as 8.16.0011.8771. Again, this is the version that is currently working for me, not the version I had problems with (I didn't get a snapshot of that before I updated it).

The dxdiag posted in spoiler below is the version that seems to now be working for me.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the reports, they'll help us to look into this. For anyone who hasn't done so already, please post up a copy of your DxDiag within[Spoiler][/spoiler] tags.
