Default Mysterious fps drops with .86

Ever since downloading PR .86 I have been experiencing periodic fps drops. Normally I get around 80 fps. About every two minutes my fps drops to three for 2 - 5 seconds, then goes back to normal. This doesn't feel like normal fps lag because it happens even when I am not doing anything or near anyone, and I didn't experience anything like this in .85.

Any suggestions?

Heres some specs:

Core2duo E6600
2x 8800gts in SLI
2 gb 800 ddr2 ram

I am running PR on ultra high settings and at 1680x1050. I checked temps and they are a little high but still well within the margins. I'm gonna try updating my drivers to see if that helps.

Hmmm Someone in my clan with an 8800GTS was complaining about the fps drop too.

hm ive also had this...get smooth framerates on medium/low settings then every few seconds itd drop to like 3fps and and then go back up...nothing on my screen would change.
i late realized that i left my comp on battery saver mode and not high performance...but its weird that i was still getting like ~40 fps whereas usually battery mode is just consecutive slow slow fps.

I had also same kind of problem with 0.85. In my case, something odd propgram was using CPU time. Stop all unimportant programs when you start playing PR.

I updated my drivers and cleared my bf2 cache and this seemed to fix the problem.
