I think it's just draw distance and the new shadows are very demanding if set too high... my standard draw distance was about 50-60 before the patch in the original game, but now anything over 30 gives me some massive framerate loss in large open areas with lots of shadows.

Putting it on 30 makes the game run at 30fps at pretty much all times though, which for this game is damn smooth really.
I gots one of them high powered gaming computers with an EVGA GTX 480 video thingy and a Q9550 processing device and also one of them Windows 7 64 operating programs with 4GB of some Corsair 1033 DDR2 ram.
