I experience random performance drops on 0.61 in general (unconfirmed in .60). After playing for a while on this version this became more and more obvious to me.
I usually have 30-45 fps (occasionally 60). But after walking and looking around for a while they will drop down to 15-25 fps (I had stable 20 fps with the old renderer).
At first I though the reason for this is that the scene just got more complex. Or my computer slows down. But by simply jiggling around my camera a bit the same scene renders at my usual 30-45 fps again.
I tested this issue a bit on the same scene when the performance dropped:
-just standing still and waiting does not solve the problem.
-jiggling the camera around (sometimes 360°) solves the problem.
-tabbing out and back into the game solves the problem.
-changing my graphic settings drastically solves the problem.
Most often this problem seem to occur outside of towns where a lot of trees are visible.
