I thought it did for me too, but the problem restarted after awhile. Here's how I can reproduce the sluggishness at least most of the times...

- Play WoW for like an hour (visit graphic intensive areas like Dalaran where it would bring your fps down to < 30)
- Alt-Tab (or switch desktop screens)
- Browse Youtube or some other flashy sites
- Switch back to WoW screen and witness your fps falls to a crawl (~ 5 fps)

This doesn't happen all the time though. I think it got better with the latest Beta driver 180.18.
