Also having the same issue. I get smooth 60-70 fps for about 5 seconds til it pauses for .5 to 1 second and fps blips down to 30-40 and then immediately goes up to 60-70 again.
This was not happening before 5.2 and it continues to happen on a fresh install of WoW, no addons installed, etc etc.
It happens regardless of it being set to the standard "Good" settings I use or even when dropped all the way to low.

Ya, i disabled all my addons, it was present in ptr too. Sometimes my fps start to flactulate to 50~60 and some stutters for 4~5 seconds and then gone. Its happening just with me?
It still loads them even if they are disabled . It also does not remove any changes to your config files the addons did.
This has been happening to me since 5.2 dropped. No matter the continent: Azeroth, Outland, Northland or Pandaria...the game will stutter for a second or 2. During this stutter, my FPS will drop from 60 to around 20-30 FPS. When it goes away, FPS will go right back to 60.
At first, all I did on patch day was catch the changes done to the farm, did my tamer dailies and then log. Noticed the stuttering as soon as I logged on. It would happen in a certain amount of time or when I changed from 1 named area within a zone to another.
Since I have been camping some rare pets I still don't have, thats how I realized it was happening elsewhere then in Pandaria. Namely been farming the Sporelings in Zangarmarsh and the Scourged Whelplings in Icecrown. While making my paths, each time a new named area pops up on the screen, the game does what appears to be the CRZ load...hence the stuttering.
I don't run with addons, not since all the Cogentco mess back in January. I have deleted the WTF, CACHE, INTERFACE, the extra CACHE folder and the hidden BATTLE.NET one since 5.2 was released. I have run as ADMIN and not.
I'm having the same problems. Frame rates dropping to 1 for a few seconds, then it smooths out. The overall FPS has dropped a little, from 50 or so to mid to high 30s. I've updated everything I can from addons to drivers, removed addons/WTF, and it still stalls on me.
Also having the same problem as everybody else mentioned, and only since 5.2 dropped.
Running the latest non-beta WHQL GeForce Drivers for my specific video card (gf 460 gtx) - 314.07 released on 2/18/13.
I am not sure if this is graphical or fps, it seems more like fps b/c they do cut down from like 60-75 to 0.
I would try without the add-ons folder full of add-ons, but it looks like from posts here, that doesn't help at all.
I was fine until 5.2 - so either this is a problem caused by some feature in 5.2, or there is some remnant of an addon somehwere causing it. I'm leaning towards the first one atm...
