massive frame rate drop after update.

Mac Technical Support
After doing the update the game will drop to 12-14 FPS regardless of graphic setting after about 10-15 seconds of gameplay.

This issue was not present prior update. It has made game unplayable. I can have nothing on screen and have a 1v1 match vs AI and framerate will always drop after 10-15 seconds of gameplay.

Issue is present in all campaign missions as well.

late 2010 MBP 2.66 Intel Core i7 8 gb ram Nvidia geforce gt 330m
I too am having almost unplayable frame rate dropping - 8-9FPS instead of usual 35+ FPS on
EDIT: I have the same exact MBP as the original poster.
What update? The 1.5.3 update or the recent tools update?

the edit that came out on friday....the 1.5.3 rather sucks because it tricks you into thinking its playable and then out of no where frame rate tanks...
Do we have an update as to when this will be addressed. it's only a mac specific bug as this isn't present on my windows partition. I've attempted to repair the game files and reinstall the game. The issue is interesting, the Frame rate drop occurs within 10 seconds of starting a game SP MP CG.
Once it remains consistently low regardless if you quit the match and even go to the WOL main menu......Only way to get it to stop is to restart the game....

I'm kinda bummed this is really the only game I play and it's unplayable on my mac right now.
Well, the thing is, I'm confused on what your meaning. 1.5.3 came out months ago, and the only thing that was updated recent was a tools update to include the repair tool.

I haven't seen a mass report of this, so I don't think it is all Macs. I tried it on the one here, and I haven't been able to reproduce this.

Can you post full system specs and specific about what FPS you're seeing before and after? Full specs help us see a better picture.

Obtaining System Information
    1. Hold the 'Option' Key and choose System Profiler/Information from the Apple Menu.

    2. Copy the information from the following sections:
  • Hardware (remove the Serial Number line)
  • Graphics/Displays
  • Software (remove the Computer Name and User Name lines)

Also, have you tried an SMC reset to see if it helps?
