It started a few days ago. I used to have 60fps at all times (CQ disabled), in space or station (door).
Then it all went to hell, i try to lock a target in space and my FPS drops from 60 to 20-30. If i try to lock few targets at the same time i get a slide show. Frustrating as hell.
Then i get performance hits in the station, opening cargo containers, market list, always the same thing, from 60 to 20 FPS. Tried disabling eve sound, no help. Cleared cache, no help. Moved eve to a different hard drive, still nothing. Disabled vsync and got 300 fps and drops to 50 on same actions, so no help there.
Before this crap started i didn't install nothing on my PC, no new drivers, its only Eve that makes this problems, other games go smoothly. It just started on its own.

I play in fixed window 1280*962 same as i did before.
PC is E6500, 4gb ram, Gigabyte GA-EP45C-DS3R & XFX HD5770 1gb.
No viruses/firewalls problems, drives defragged nicely. Killed all processes in the background and still no help.
I am out of ideas by now. What the hell is going on?

Same problem here. I used to get a steady 60FPS no matter what or 200FPS+ with VSync off.

It's been driving me nuts, hopefully it's fixed soon.

Specs are: Intel Core i7 2600K @ 5GHz, 4 Gigs DDR3, GTX 470 OC'ed, and EVE is located on my OCZ Agility 3.

It appears disabling "Camera Smoothing" has fixed my issue, as well as returned my warp bubble.
EDIT: Spoke too soon, though it seems to have lessened the frequency of it dropping.

I dunno what happened, i booted my backup windows few months old and same thing is going on. And since this started few days ago, its not the last patch problem.
I was gonna blame stupid windows for some reason, but just tested and its not windows related.

Cant be disc access, tried 2 drives that work flawlessly with anything else. Deleted all my eve settings, no go. Locking a target kills FPS also, when i open the fitting window in space i get FPS drops from 60 to 0 every 5 seconds.
I noticed that every time i access market to see the prices my FPS drops to hell or opening a station container. Like somehow the client slows down while getting data from the server. Lag maybe? Could this affect the client in some way?
Can a Dev give some light on this?
Drivers are new, all other games (Grid, Dirt2/3, Bulletstorm, Borderlands, Crysis1/2 and a crapload of others) dont have this issue with frame-rate drops and micro-stutters.
