    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to know if anyone is or has experienced the same issues as me:

    The FPS of the rMBP goes down, it is barely noticeable when I browse, view videos, etc. However, when playing a game, such as WoW, D3, or SC2, the FPS is drastically reduced. I used to be able to play SC2 on high at 1680x1050 and the game would run very smooth (before December 2012), same thing with D3 and WoW. Now the games lag all the time, even if I turn down the res to something dumb such as 1280x800.

    It is also noticeable in the animations from OSX - for example, Launchpad, there is a low FPS with the opening animation, or switching from one screen to the next (this is just an example, there is also low FPS with many other animations).

    I've tried to reset the PRAM, even reinstalled the whole OS, but still this lag/low FPS remains.

    Anyone had a similar problem and managed to solve it?

    Reset SMC.. normally that's a SMC bug due sleep mode.
