Screen freeze

EDIT: Solved, below system requirements lol!
since launch I was encountering sudden jumps of my CPU from 45%-55% to suddenly over 100% with a complete screen freeze of my computer that affects not just ESO but everything and lasts almost always about five seconds.

Activity monitor freezes too, so I don't know what's going on during the five seconds, but when the freezing ends it shows ESO is using over 160% of my CPU before it goes back to the usual 50%.

It's now happening every few seconds in a city or in cyrodiil, making the game almost unplayable.

I tried setting SET RequestedNumWorkerThreads and RequestJobThreads both to "0" with no visible result. Repairing the game did not yield a result either and setting the graphics to minimum didn't stop the madness, I still get freezes but didn't test extensively whether they come in rarer numbers.

As a bonus, now sometimes the freeze seems to last forever and I had to force restart my computer three times today after waiting a min for it to unfreeze.

About my mac:
Processor 2,66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics card ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
Serial number VM822Q1PZE6
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63b)

Help would be appreciated.
