Same issues for me.

We put up with having to reset the SMC every day or so for most of 5.2 and now with this it's just made it very un-fun.

I wish a blue would chime back in here with some god damn feedback.

Hello Kátatonia,

let's start by a simple question. Since you set the Settings all the way to Low, did you try to lower your Resolution as well and if so, did it affect the FPS Rates?

I can probably answer this. No, lowering the settings does not change a thing.

Resetting the SMC (like the 5.2 issue that plagued us for almost the entire patch) doesn't resolve this either.

i will also say though that after 5.2 i deleted almost all of my add ons and thats helped a ton, try disabling all your addons have none on at all and see if that helps you any

Same issue and not having any blue responses is getting rather old. There are multiple threads on this board with folks having issues. What is the issue? How do we help Blizzard come up with a solution? I've got a post on this board that no one has even responded to.

Bootcamp side working like clockwork.
OSX side FUBAR!

Something is wrong.
