Prior to the 2.0.7 patch, I had my graphics set to mostly "high" across most of the options and I was able to get around 30 FPS in a multiplayer game. Right after applying the patch I noticed that the main menu screen seemed slow, so I checked and found out I was only getting 9-10 FPS. I went into a game and immediately I could tell I was running slowly. I even got the message that I was slowing down the game.
After the game, I turned everything down to medium and started another game. It improved a bit, but according to the cmd+option+f FPS display, I was still only getting around 20 FPS, and it was introducing very noticeable lag on my end, especially placing buildings and selecting units. I just tried on low settings and got 59-60 fps (using vertical sync), but when I go to the standard medium settings, I only get 19-20 fps. Before, I was getting 29-30 fps on generally "high" settings.
I have a 2012 model quad core i7 macbook pro with the fastest graphics card available and 8GB RAM. One thing to note is that I usually play the game on a 24 inch external monitor connected via a displayport to HDMI connector. I will try the game using the laptop monitor as well. (Using the laptop lcd, the game has always performed faster due to the decreased resolution, but again, I almost always use the external display and it's never been a problem for performance.)
Essentially, I'm experiencing a significant drop in performance without making any changes other than applying the 2.0.7 patch.
