Today I installed GTA4 (not EFLC) and it ran perfectly on max, 50-70fps according to fraps.
Now I installed latest patch and it's like 34-40fps average, a huge drop.
Is there any way I can fix this without downgrading? I tried to disable the shadows at all (as it is the graphics improvement I can see), but it makes no difference, still 35-40fps.
Here's benchmark (which shows FPS which I actually had before patch, but is taken after patching):
