I am a very unsatisfied customer with this crippling frames per second stuff, seems to be worse than the 1.4 update. I can't play flashpoints to get the new droid companion that came out and get do warzones going on 2 months now. For the love of people's hard earned money subscriptions please do something about this! I would love to stand by this game but i'm having a hard time justifying that anymore when you keep pumping out new content without fixing whats already there.

I was reading the Nvidia known issues list earlier and it mentioned that Physx was sometimes being set to CPU and would cause poor fps in physx games . Dont know if this will help but it may be worth checking.
[PhysX]: After installing the driver, occasionally the PhysX processor selection in the
NVIDIA Control Panel is set to CPU instead of AutoSelect (Recommended), resulting
in PhysX games running slowly. [1049752]

One thing I've noticed is that I drop in FPS as the client is open longer.

Download memory cleaner and fix the settings so that once your CPU gets to 80% it clears the system cache.

Thats what fixed it for me since 1.4 anyways

Restarting my PC after the new patch solved my FPS drop.

Yep, same here. I am normally able to run at high graphics with little to no issue and sustain at least at 20-30 fps.

Now it dropped to 2 fps, and 5 or 6 fps in the LOGIN SCREEN.

EDIT: I did try restarting my computer and it helped a little, at least at the login screen, but fps is still pretty low than normal.
