This has helped me the few times I played WoW. Just removing and getting the updater to redownload those files.
I've been able to pull 60 FPS just fine using a single 6950 and I ran around 900/1400 for the best part of a year.

So as stated by others, check drivers and check for a malfunctioning card or component if the above doesn't work. Also as stated by a few others, there is a new profile for WoW MoP

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx
Code:

This release of AMD Catalyst™ delivers support for the latest AMD CrossFireX™ and AMD Enduro™ profiles in a separate executable file ensuring users have access to the absolute latest set of profiles installed on their PC.
                                  
              New profiles added to this release:
                                 -  World of Warcraft - Mist of Pandaria (DX11, DX9):   Fixes texture flickering observed when enabling high graphics settings with CrossFire enabled

Everyone makes comments on Wow being really CPU dependent but i don't buy it i have raided with 25 people and checked my cpu utilization and it is sitting at about 60% across all 4 cores and my GTX 580 is sitting at 58% utilization and i get 30fps the problem is the game doesn't ask enough of current hardware.

But shadows on Ultra is a no go just kills the games fps.

Another thing currently Nvidia have driver issues where you can be playing fine in certain areas and in others randomly your Graphics driver will fail.

Addons are usually the culprit with performance issues, especially when an expansion or patch hits.

Disabled all addons and retry.

60% across all 4 cores??. wow doesn't use 4 cores...and 60% usage even on two cores is alot for video game... because most are so graphic dependent...so yes wow is cpu bound as all mmo's are including gw2.

intel has always done better in wow than amd.

just an example:

WoW can use more at least 6 if not more cores:

To the OP.


WoW is still considered to be a dual-threaded app based on how effective it's threads function. Current Operating Systems simply spread the load across all cores to lower the chance any will be maxed out to allow smoother multitasking without worrying about assigning cpu affinities. There is a 3rd thread but it's not a real thread as it's not effectively used, it's a minor-at-best "thread' and doesn't qualify as a true thread, but for that very reason, some people based on their hardware configuration will use a different affinity setup in WoW's "W-T-F" as it sometimes does help them but it's always been with the much older quad cores or the tri core procs. It's important you know the improvement isn't significant by any means and normally only helped towns to load faster. There is a fourth thread, but it's basically not even worth mentioning as it's effective usage is somewhere around say 1% of everything else.

WoW is extremely CPU dependent as more people appear around you, this is why your framerate drops significantly around others, especially in raids and towns, enabling ultra shadows makes it extremely more taxing. This is also why you can be in a town with near max CPU usage and only 50% GPU usage.

As long as you don't have a video card with a low amount of Vram, the most taxing setting is Ultra Shadows, in my 8 years of experience across many combinations of hardware, going from Ultra Shadows to down the notch below it on average gave me 20 fps when in a town as Ultra Shadows around that many people ate up CPU cycles like they were candy.

MoP's new shadow setting "SSAO" shouldn't be too demanding, but I haven't had many chances to examine it as I'm retired from the game, but I did mess around for a few days post MoP client patch. But, if it's adding more shadows then logically it's going to be even more taxing, I just can't say how much.

I'm also aware there's an even further view distance now and much higher quality textures, but I can't say much of anything about them.

Also, if you haven't updated your mods, there's a very high chance one of them is significantly hindering your framerate, it's very common.

If you ever see yourself in a situation where you target something or enter combat and your framerate drastically decreases, that's an old/bad combination of settings relating to mods, then you have to wipe your Interface/W-T-F folder.
