Yeah I'm experiencing this same issue. It seems to be at random locations where I see this huge performance hit that I never saw before. I'm using a Radeon 5770 1GB with latest (10.1) Windows 7 64-bit Catalyst drivers.
Before the last patch, the only time I would dip below 70-90fps on max settings would be in a VERY busy fleet action or when the Borg invaded earth spacedock at the end of OB. I expected a performance hit in those situations, but not dropping down to 25fps when I'm flying through an empty system by myself.
On a plus note, the huge performance drop when opening the skill tree window is gone, but now this...
P.S. altering graphic display settings in game doesn't seem to accomplish much of anything at all.
