Patch 1.5 dropped last week. Before patch, I ran starcraft2 on maximum settings and the game ran smooth... hot-knife-thru-butter-smooth.
After patch, I've been almost daily tweaking my settings... and it's choppy... when a new unit spawns... when I get into combat with my opponent... basically the screen freezes for a second... maybe 2 or 3... highly annoying.
I'm fairly certain my gear is equipped to handle sc2 at max settings... but it's not doing so, and I need help figuring out why.
I've played with all settings on MAX (extreme), and I've played with all settings on lowest. In both cases.. I receive similar fps issues, which naturally leads me to believe it's not a hardware issue on my end.
