Also experiencing terrible frame rates. The game technically runs but it may as well be an interactive slideshow at the rate it goes. Prior to this patch I got very good and even amazing frame rates at low and medium graphics settings, but now I can't break 14fps even when I'm in menu screens.

For what it's worth... "me too".

I'm glad to see I'm not imaging things. Surprised and disappointed a patch with such terrible performance was released.

Hopeful for a fix soon...

Also I'm on a PC not Mac:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series - msi cyclone R6850
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz, 2400 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB

EDIT: I just realized this is the MAC support thread. In any case, my Windows PC doesn't run 1.5 well either.

Assuming this might be from the system switching to the Intel 3000 GPU mid-game, I turned off the automatic graphics switching option in the system preferences, but the problem continues.

I'm haveing the same issue... I'm not even going to post my Hard drive overview simply because I know for a fact its the new patch. What did Blizzard do to make this dramatic FPS drop. I ran perfectly in 1.4 patch, now in 1.5 I drop to 1 FPS.... I used to run around 40 FPS.... FIX THIS! I spent 60 on D3, UNPLAYABLE! Now on SC2, after the 1.5 patch, UNPLAYABLE! Soon as it hits 9-10 minutes into the match, BOOM, right down to 1-4 FPS............................... FIX THIS PLEASE. THANKS....

Guys, maybe try what I did and switch from Low settings to Medium. Counterintuitive but this actually improved my performance. Don't ask me to explain how or why...

Same here, Went from playable of 60+ fps on low down to an unplayable fps. FPS goes to below 10 when in late game... which is unplayable..

I am using the 2011 i5 13" mac air same as a few of the others in this thread.

Please take care of your customers and fix this ASAP, I purchased this game only because I knew it was playable on my laptop.

Note: Same issue with D3...BTW
