This is just a total blunder on Bethesda's part and absolute embarrassment. Unbelievable, I just can't believe they did this. Confounds me.

This is probably among the top reasons why Skyrim only runs on two threads.

Some comparison pics with FPS display:

OMG THEY SHOULD ALL BE LINED UP AND SHOT. THEN WE WILL TORTURE THEM TO DEATH. AFTER THAT WE WILL KILL THEM, THEN REVIVE THEM AND KILL THEM TO DEATH AGAIN. AFTER THAT WE WILL SEND THEM TO DETROIT WITH A LOT OF BLING BLING AROUND THEIR NECKS.

WTF! stfu and play the game. I can't believe the stuff you guys cry about.
