FPS drops in half when entering combat
In addition to the inconsistent FPS I see when just walking around cities, I reported the following via email to Zenimax and got a ticket # but am posting here in hopes that someone may have some ideas:
"Since patch 1.5 started, I am having huge FPS drops, mostly when entering battle, even if it is one on one with a monster/NPC. I'll be at 50 for example and then it drops quickly once I hit the first action/skill to 25 and then goes back up to 50. The stuttering lasts a full second or two with each and every battle. The same thing is happening with patch 1.5.2. I tried with SLI on (two 580Ms) and off and same problem. I then disabled all addons that were out of date. Same problem. Then I disabled all the add ons and same problem. I updated my Nvidia drivers which were only 1 version behind the 344.60 that was released today 11/4 and same problem. I tried using the Nvidia Optimized settings which only changed water reflections to a lower setting and same problem. I have most other things on max except for something about particles which was lowered. I'm attaching a DXDIAG. Again I had no FPS issues before patch 1.5 and the game ran perfectly smooth."
