I've been having issues with my framerate dropping from around 40-60 fps out and around the world to down to <5 after several hours straight of playing. I am able to close out of WoW and restart to fix it, but then a few hours later it resurfaces. After about the third time of doing this, when I log back in, I'm missing large sections of the world, as in invisible polys. My framerate is stupidly low at this point, so I reboot my computer and it fixes itself. My latest attempt at fixing this involved disabling SCT on a hunch, and I haven't had it drop yet, but I also haven't played for 12 hours straight either since then.
Does this sound like the problems that players had with the UI Accelerator, or something different? My CPU, motherboard, and graphics processers were all running below 45 degrees Celsius as a reference point.
Twid - we've been having that same problem on one of our machines, but it seems to be more intermittent with time (ie, happening less frequently). We've tried various addon-related fixes, but nothing has conclusively affected it.
Twid, I had something similar happening to me (although far more frequently) I unchecked 'smooth mouse' which had significant effect on the slowdown, and downloaded some new drivers (I've got an ATI card, and they have new drivers that are about 2 weeks old) which fixed the graphics.
Ok, thanks for the tips. I'll see if I have smooth mouse enabled, and double check that my NVidia drivers are current. I didn't drop framerate last night and didn't have SCT on at all, so I'll reenable it and see if it returns.
