I would say the min. FPS is caused from loading all the textures into memory as its in the first 100frames each time more along the lines as 28-30fps lows.

Guess i should add i normaly run my shadows on gamer as they are the system killers.
Run the pass 3 times, meaning choose 3 in the runs... That will eliminate the loading of textures as it won't count the first run. And yes, the first run is always slower than the rest. No wonder those minimums are that low.
