Does any one have any hard numbers pre and post patch for performance hits?

I just tested it and only took a 5-9 fps hit I could have sworn before that it was hurting me for 15-20 fps but I don't have any of my old logs from initial release where I used AO, all my testing since has been max options but w/o AO so I don't have hard numbers.

I know I mentioned in another thread that plants no longer seem to try and cook my GPUs, but with AO on walking by plants does kick the heat up like they used to so I won't be using it in conjunction with my current near max settings. But it would be nice to have confirmation that I don't belong in the looney bin and AO doesn't cause as much of a FPS hit as it used to... because that would mean SE's on the right track in the programming department as well.

I too have everything set to max, but the only real graphical problem i've encountered is that my name now bounces up and down repeatedly while running. Never happened to me before.

There hasnt really been much lag since i blew up my old comp and had to rebuild it. Cant really comment on taking any FPS hit.
