4 posts were merged into an existing topic: Important FPS drop since patch today [PC]

Last evening in raid I was having really low FPS while nothing changed on my end besides some addon updates. Instead of 55~60 fps I was constantly at 40~50.

I’ve checked my graphic settings and nothing changed. Seems to have gone better after disabling a few weak auras, but I’ve been using them for over a month and never caused issues before.

OS Version: 11.2.3
Graphics: Apple M1
Processor: Apple M1
Memory: 8GB

  • OS Version: 11.2.2
  • Graphics: M1
  • Processor: M1
  • Memory: 16GB

sorry but this is pc thread and always was. put mac problems somewhere else. tnx.

also who put (mac) in title. i never put that in title…i am pc user not mac

The Blue put the title, and if you read above, there is another link for PC. Now this has been changed to a Mac thread. We have taken over.

Big Sur 11.2.3
M1 Mac
8 Core CPU, 8 Core GPU
8 GB Memory

FPS drops like crazy in all zones for me! Before 9.0.5 patch it was rocking a steady 60 FPS at all times.

Big Sur 11.2.3
M1 Mac mini
8 Core CPU, 8 Core GPU
16 GB Memory

Lost between 20/30 fps since 9.0.5 patch (got 60 fps before).

Apologies for stealing your thread Dellerium! From your original post your platform wasn’t clear and most of the replies were for the Mac issue so other threads were already consolidated here. I’ve changed the title back to clear things up. For PC, please use this thread instead:

Same Problem Here … PC user Win10 x64 … GPU 1650s oc … i really feel like i got less fps … 20-40 FPS less maybe … i checked everything drivers are up to date bla bla bla … pfffffff

Hey guys, can we please keep this thread for the MAC issue!

If you’re on a Windows PC and are having issues, head on over to this thread:

M1 Mac Mini.
Big Sur 11.2.3.
M1 Processor 8 core, gpu 8 core.
8gb Memory.

I have gone from preset 5 running at mostly 60fps to it struggling to stay at 30 open world on the new Shadowlands areas.
Oribos sits around 18-24 fps.

However when I go to Orgrimmar it goes back to 60 but as I approach the portal to return to Oribos the fps start to dip.

I solved my issue.

System settings.

My window size was on default as usual but for some reason the resolution had changed from 1920x1080 to 3840x2160.
I manually set it to 1920x1080 and my fps was back to normal.
