Benchmark before and after KitKat - anyone else?

If the Antutu Benchmark app is to be trusted, then there is a serious performance hit on the LG G2 after the KitKat update.

Prior to KitKat, my benchmark score was 35,284. After, it plummeted to 25,027.  Anyone else have this?

I just ran it on my G2 and the number was 34703 topping every other bench mark score

I used to get that, too, before the update, but now, I can't get over 25,0000.  Are on KitKat?  Are you rooted?  I'm running stock from VZW.

Anyone tried the Android ART on Verizon LG G2?

Finally, my benchmark is up.  Didn't do anything but I'm back up to 32,141.  Not where it used to be, in line with the international LG G2.

I do find that the VS980 does hesitate occasionally.  Most times, it's good, though.

Mine has been in the 25 range the last week or so. I think there is just fluctuating results based on what the phone has been doing. I did notice though that since the update the phone uses more ram

True on the more RAM useage. My results have me just under the S4...ugh.  Before the KK update I was just a smidge above the Note 3, with the factory VS980 4th down on the list behind the Sony Experia and another phone. I have to admit though, I've seen no degradation in performance.
