ATI Graphics Issue

I have seen other people reporting on the issue introduced today with dramatic FPS loss and even glitched graphics. I am also experiencing this issue on one of my two computers that I can run this game on.

Computer 1:
2x ATI 6850 in crossfire eyefinity on 3x 23" LED monitors
18GB ram
64bit Window 7 enterprise

This computer is the one with the problem. The maps are buggy, main map and mini 'radar' map. Flickering and extremely unstable. As soon as another player goes across my screen the framerate drops to virtually 1FPS. I tested on a couple different servers, both in fleet and on starting planets. It is completely unplayable. I also never have shadows on, so that, by itself, isn't the problem.

Computer 2:
Intel core 2 quad Q6600 2.4ghz
8GB ram
64bit Window 7 enterprise
1x 23" LCD monitor
1x Nvidia GeForce GTS 450

On this computer the game still works great, even with Shadows turned on.

Try running in windowed mode. It seems crossfire/sli (among other things) is broken. Running in windowed mode forces only one gpu to be used. (Even turning off crossfire in CCC didn't fix it)
In windowed mode, the game is at least playable now with shaders/shadows/AA turned off. However, with shaders and/or shadows turned on, most of the glitchy stuff comes back immediately.
So, the game now looks like an NES game, but its playable
