Battlefield 4 Beta GPU and CPU Benchmarks

Battlefield_4_Beta-test-bf_4_2560

[UPDATE 10/30/13] Retail benchmarks have been released and can be viewed here.

Russian website Gamegpu.ru has done an outstanding job, again. They recently put up some very nice CPU, GPU, VRAM, and Video Stutter benchmark tests running on Nvidia and AMD graphics cards as well as Intel and AMD CPUs. RAM benchmarks were also preformed.

DICE warned that the Beta version of the game does not represent the final quality of BF4. Keep in mind that the Beta is missing some level textures and not fully optimized. Recommended hardware specs are:

OS: Windows 8 64-bit [More on why Win8 is recommended]
Processor (AMD): Six-Core
Processor (Intel): Quad-Core
Memory: 8 GB
Hard Drive / Solid State Drive: 30 GB
Graphics Card (AMD): AMD Radeon 7870 [Amazon]
Graphics Card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce GT 660 [Amazon]
Graphics Memory: 3 GB

For comparison, check out the Alpha benchmarks here.

Battlefield 4 Beta has both basic and advanced graphics settings: ultra, high, medium and low. You can also flexibly manipulate individual settings. All graphics settings are placed on one tab the game menu.

bf 4 proz

Battlefield 4 Beta is very greedy on CPU resources. Even top models could hardly hold out to a comfortable performance. It is worth noting that the most beneficial to look eight-game model from AMD.

On some motherboards, the six-core FX models show inadequate results. The solution :  Try to put the priority in the task manager on the Battlefield 4 Beta to low, and if that doesn’t help, adjust the BIOS settings to disable 2 cores.

Download cores  at maximum quality settings 1920×1080 Intel%

bf 4 intel

bf 4 amd

Battlefield 4 can completely use up to eight processing threads. The distribution of the load on AMD calibrated much better than for Intel.

RAM

3930k

Testing the memory consumed by BF4  was carried out directly through the Windows Task Manager Windows.The test was conducted on the basic configuration of Core i 7 3970H@4.9 GHz c preset memory of 16GB DDR3 2400 MGz.

Testing at different quality settings

bf 4 ram

As we can see, the basic settings for different qualities of memory consumed in Battlefield 4 Beta is located at 1600-2200 megabytes. Thus, for a comfortable game, you must have at least 3  GB of RAM installed in your PC. The optimum will be the presence of 4 gigabytes.

    Soooooo. To all of you that said no game ever will use my 8 cores. EAT SHIT ! 60 fps ultra full amd/ati

    • promega

      60fps is garbage LOL. Enjoy that mouse lag.

      • John Williams

        60 fps with no lag spikes is fine.

      • Alex Nedea

        are you retarded?
        1. 60 frames is the same you will get on your shitty consoles and it’s perfectly fine considering i didn’t have to sell my house to get my gpu :/
        2. WHAT THA FUCK is mouse lag? The game works perfectly fine my k/d is 2.4 and i have 0 lag spikes.
        3. My gaming rig was 1200 Euros(amd/ati), and to get the same thing with nvidia would cost me at least 3 times as much. Nvidia is like iPhone, “high price SHIT”. Did you even realise that they compare my 8350 with the i73900x which costs the same as my whole pc.

        • promega

          lolz a kdr of 2.4 did not get me rank 11 in most mvps on CS:GO comp mode.. I have been in the fps gambit for 14 years. Most people do not know what mouse lag is, or that they are suffering from it. To learn the difference you will need to feel the difference. I advise you to play a counter strike game at 150 fps, then set max_fps to 60 and notice you have to up your sensitivity.. hmmm why is that. fps means nothing about eyecandy to us pro players, and everything to mouse fluidness/consistancy.

          I used a CRT until very recently moved to a 144hz LCD, why, well thats a question your IQ will not permit me answering. Sorry 60 fps bottlenecks the mouse, and always will. Why do you think newer games have raw input mouse options, just for fun? check out rawinput.exe version 1.3.. it works in bf3, and most games that are not a unreal engine game. I dont think it works in bf4… yet. why am I wasting my fingers, I have typed flavors of this argument a thousand times to nub scrubs just like you that think they know something. Default MS polling rate is 125= 8ms, 1000 polling rate = 2ms. My monitor is 1ms, render ahead set to 1ms (sometimes 2 if I get crashes). All this stuff I am talking about is way over your head no worries kid.

          AGAIN DO MY COUNTER STRIKE CHALLENGE, set the max fps to 60 play, then set it to 150+ and play. TELL ME YOUR MOUSE doesnt feel diff.

          You are probably one of those scrubs that treats dpi as mouse sensitivity and have turned your mouse into a microscope at 3600 dpi and turn you sensitivity down… You want a real pro tip son, NEVER go over 1100 DPI, and thats with a teflon pad, mesh, I wouldnt break 600.

          whatevers, enjoy your subpar system, but remember PROMEGA’s standard is: 140fps FOR ZERO MOUSE BOG.

          Theres your free info from a real life amazing FPS gamer. There is a reason I got to rank 11, its because I understand the hardware and how important it is.

            That is a quite resume, now back to bf4.

            I dazzle kids.

          • Juhász Roland Márió

            You can’t feel the difference between 150 FPS and 60 because of the screen tearing with 60Hz vertical refresh rate monitor/TV… I tried games that run more than 60 FPS on my PC and I get so many tears while turning that it’s unplayable for me, so I always use Vsync for fluid gameplay, running a game on more FPS than your display vertical refresh rate can support just ruins your gaming experience with all those tearings imo… thus I haven’t noticed any difference with my Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 mouse… (was playing Portal 2 though with over 100FPS without Vsync) although I had a crapy square LCD monitor with max res of 1280×1024 but with 75Hz vertical refresh rate, and there I noticed the difference between 60 and 75FPS, but no mouse input lag at all…

          • promega

            In my other posts I already address this but screw it I’ll say it again. Why are you using vsync on a 60hz monitor while playing a FPS game.. Turn vsync off and you can feel it 150 vs 60.. I tell you how to test it, but you wont. I use a 144hz monitor btw, and I vsync for alot of games ;). You can overclock your monitor to 70 (probably) btw. Tearing does suck, hence why I bought a 144hz monitor, and before that used CRT’s at 1024×760 or whatever the res was..

            The best part of your statement is that if your vsynced you cant go over 60 fps anyways on a 60hz monitor so you whole statement is irrelevant.

            Enjoy that nub setup, 60hz vsynced LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL stay under my score poser.

          • PFC_Stone

            Yea I am running on a 60hz monitor at 8ms and I was 2nd on the leader boards in battlefield 4 beta with a kd of 15.54. I don’t need no fancy 144hz shit to kick ass.

          • promega

            ran in bf games is garbage, look at who is top players via battle log, it is always nub tubes, tanks, and attack chopper gunners. nice try, I like how you only claim the clunky games.

          • fvm.zc,mv

            Lol, u talk allot of techtalk but it seems to me u dont know shit.

            “Default MS polling rate is 125= 8ms, 1000 polling rate = 2ms.”

            Mouse lag isnt a issue. Never was. or do u rly think u will notice a diffence of 6ms?

            When u got 100 FPS every frame will be shown for 10ms. The 6ms diffence wil never been noticed because it takes 10ms to show a frame.

            Please do ur homework son….

            another kid trying to sound smart with no real information. I most deff feel a difference. You are just re-affirming you will always and only be novice. If you have a slow mind, fps is not for you.

            Do you notice a difference between 8 sec and 2 sec? Well some one mentally handicapped might not, does that make the difference non-existent. I’m sorry kid I don’t let other peoples perceptions/life experience affect my own. At least not when it comes to gaming. I will not and cannot play on a 60hz monitor synced (or 60 fps in general), it has absolutely nothing to with the visuals, and everything to do with the clunkyness of the mouse. I play other games, LoL I can play at 60 fps no problem, fps games no flucking way.

          lol bosting about your cheap and nasty shit! my 4670k and 770 get’s me 60 fps no problem. fucking gimp get a life and buy some quality components. only bums that are on a budget buy amd.

          • sebkurnia

            I think it’s perfectly fine to have a cheap setup, it depends on the amount of money that you have on hand. AMD makes some good parts price/performance wise that may not be on par with Intel/nVidia but are good for the budget gamer. And the fact that he can get 60fps by paying a shitload less than you says a lot about price/performance gaming.

          • Guy Parris

            he’s probably lying out his ass. amd run hotter, have worse frame times, latency issues, the performance is shit on the cpu’s there a whole lot of reviews out there that slate the 8350 it was the worst amd have brought to the table. the gpu’s are just as bad with there terrible drivers, latency issues again, power consumption. my 770 and 4670k will do me a lot longer than his components what ever shitty amd/ati he’s got in his computer. 8350 clocked at 4.8ghz can’t even beat a 3570k at 4.2ghz now that’s saying something. people are like awh amd overclock like hell and it doesn’t make a difference what’s so ever. amd are cheap for a reason. intel and nvidia are sooooo much more advanced than amd in every way. that’s amd finally getting something to smooth out frames and how long has it taken them? nvidia done that like 10 year ago amd are just laughable. anyway intel’s 4 core will still be better than amd’s 8 core cpu’s. unless they actually make a good cpu this time around and not balls it up like last time.

            Holy fuck are you like 15 years old or something?

            look at that right there the 8350 get’s hammered it will be the same with next gen there 8 core’s doesn’t help. it’s intel experts against amd noobs. same with there new gpu r9 series the 280x can’t even beat the 770 and 780 and if that’s the competition against the 700 series then that’s a complete joke. the 290x is suppose to be faster than the titan hahahah we’ll see if the 280 can’t even beat the 770 or 780 what the hell is the 290 going to do.

          • calical26

            amd is taking over gaming now amd newer game will not use DX or openCL anymore they be using mantle nvidia cant use it

          • calical26

            we all see in december when they add it to battlefield 4

          • MickT

            actually nVidia is allowed to use it if they wish as mantle is open to anyone. It just depends if nVidia will pull their heads out of their asses or not.

          • SAimNE

            too bad none of those games are coded to support all 8 cores…. meanwhile every AAA title coming out this gen is most likely going to support at least 8 cores…. so those specs are absolutely pointless for what’s coming(and people will most likely do a bit of tweaking/modding to older titles so they will better utilize multicore tech as well)

            also the 280x isnt even out for consumers yet, nothing has been given the opportunity to make use of mantle, and the drivers are still in their infant stages….. we’ll see how it fairs once it actually has a chance to compete -_-.

          • Guy Parris

            crysis 3 used 8 cores and my 4670k handles that game without a sweat. haha isn’t the 280 not suppose to be aimed at the 770 and 780 though? so I guess the 290 will be aimed at the 690 and titan and the 790 when it’s released. amd is going to get spanked this gen. hahahaha amd drivers? really? there a joke as well.

          • SAimNE

            280 is aimed at the 770 area. while the 290/290x would be taking on the 780 and the titan. then for the 790(which is 2 780s on one card) they would have to release the 295 or w/e.

            as for the drivers amd has been steadily improving, and now that they have a huge level of testing on their hardware the drivers should be improving by leaps and bounds for this generation

            now try to take your head out of your @$$ and actually pay attention. ati and nvidia played leapfrog all the time for the best(sometimes a third or fourth company chimed in but it was mostly just them) and amd/intel have done the same thing as well. generation to generation has shown the upper hand get traded back and fourth more times than anyone cares to count, and writing off the possibility of it happening yet again is something only an ignorant child would do.

          • Guy Parris

            the 760 wipes the floor with the 260. the 770 beats the 280x and I’m pretty sure the 780 will compete well with the 290 but the 790 and titan will wipe the floor with the 290. drivers please that’s all amd have been doing is trying to improve shit that’s how bad they are. lol intel cpu’s wipe the floor with amd don’t talk utter shit. gpu’s yeah I agree the 7000 series and the 600 series were close to each other but I really can’t see them being competitive with nvidia this round. even the prices you can get a good 280 for 310 but you could pay an extra 40 for a 4gb 770 which has 1gb extra over the 280 and has higher memory clocks and higher core clock it’s a no brainer really.

          • SAimNE

            my entire point has been that the r7 and r9 havent really been given a competitive chance yet…. there is still a little time needed before they would perform where the hardware would place it. And then once they start coding for mantle they could jump by like 50%…. meaning under optimal conditions the 280 could compete with the titan, much less the fricken 270

            also every prediction in the industry puts the 290x at being superior to the 780 and titan. the 290 would destroy the 780 still(probably close to the titan), and the 280x should be able to perform competitively with the 770

            also i’d like to note the 280 is a rebranded7970… and the 770 and the 7970 have almost the same performance in this game, so it should at least compete, and should actually come out on top once the drivers get worked on.

            also on the cpus…. are you high. amds fx processor placed third in the tests here, comping within 4-8 fps of a processor that cost MORE THAN TWICE ITS PRICE…. thats called a beast of a performance to cost ratio, then add in that the next processor line looks to be quite a bit better on performance, and amd now has a competitive leg in the high end processor market again.

            if you would pay attention to results rather than believe your own misguided presumptions you would have seen these facts. amd is becoming competitive again in processors, has a much better option for low end(apus), and will most likely compete on par or above with this gens gpus.

          • Guy Parris

            the 770 beats the 7970 by like 7 to 10 fps in most games

          • SAimNE

            they were roughly on par in the overview of things…. just depended on what settings were used. as an apparently diehard nvidia fanboy you most likely saw results that were tuned towards nvidias sweetspot.

            anyway point is the cards are roughly on par, and once mantle starts into widespread adoption it will completely whip it so much they will have to hire dio to make a soundtrack.

          • Guy Parris

            I’m not a die hard nvidia fan boy I just don’t do cheap shitty components I would rather pay 40 more for quality components than paying for cheap components by a cheap noob of a company. nvidia and intel have a lot more experience than amd when it comes to hardware.

          • SAimNE

            ….. what are you even talking about.. intel isnt even a full year older than amd… it’s all of 1-2% less of a noob than amd.

            as for crappy/quality when the phenoms were released intel was total crap in comparison, and there have been a few generations where ati was turning nvidia into a whipping boy as well. fact is you are apparently a 10 year old who read 3 articles about IT and thinks he’s an expert.

            please review history before you bring up this moronic crap again -_-

          • MickT

            lol, you’re comparing the r9 280x against the 770 on this generation’s games? The r9 is made for next gen buddy. This is the first next gen game being benchmarked…before release I might add and you’re already throwing out conclusions? Mantle hasn’t even been implemented yet, why don’t you wait until that happens and then I’ll be inclined to believe your little rant.

          • Guy Parris

            so the best 280x you can get is around 310 for 40 more you can get the 770 with 1gb extra vram, much higher memory clock, higher core clock and obviously better drivers and smoother frames. the 280x is a power hog in uses more power consumption and what did amd say where working on our cards to use less power consumption I smell bullshit. that’s all amd is talk bullshit.

          • Keir Thomson

            why would you be concerned about power consumption if your all about being the richest boy on earth. surely that £10 a year for a bit more wattage is no bother to you?

          • Guy Parris

            not just that but paying more money for a psu as well.

            in no way do i disagree with what you are saying about intel and nvidia but at the same time I do not feel the same way towards amd .

            This review details the Sapphire Toxic oc 280x card and shows benchmarks for games like battlefield 3 aswell as 3d mark . It beats both 770 and 680 and in most games not by much but in some there is a quite a difference.

            As soon as i had finished reading that review i ordered that card and am expecting it in the next few days . ( Upgrade from 580 )

            770 wins it for me. for little bit more extra you can get a 4gb gpu, with higher clocks, smoother frames and better drivers. I think you crazy buying into that card. did you hear about pc origin’s dropping amd gpu’s because of to much negative feedback with amd system from customers?. nvidia drivers are more frequent so they will beat amd all day long imo. last time I went with amd I had to wait 3 months on a driver suite everything else was beta, beta, beta could fed up with it and there problems.

            4gb on a 256bit bus = bottlenech

          • Guy Parris

            so your saying if a game uses 3gb my card will be no use? really don’t think so.

          • David Calloway

            Of course not, it’s just that much above 2gb on a 256 bus starts giving you latency issues which are costing you FPS. How’s OC’ing that 4670k working out for ya ? Delidded it yet to keep temps. under control? Should of stuck with a 2500k pushed to 4.8 and spent the extra cash on a binned gtx 780 !!!!

          • HelterSkelter

            Are you deliberately being a retard. The FX 8350 is a great cpu and is more future proof than the i5 or i7 cpus. Games making full use of 8 cores in the future will run a bit better on the 8350 than an i5. Learn a bit more about PC’s before you spread misinformation.

          • Guest
          • HelterSkelter

            The image you showed clearly shows that it’s a Battlefield 3 benchmark. Look up Crysis 3 benchmarks and you’ll see that the 8350 beat both the 3570k and the 3770k.

            if it used the cores, then it nowhere near used them properly. bf4 is geared towards multi-core use, and now the 8350 is magically scoring really really high… see how this works?

            also i’d just like to point out one thing. barely beating it is the lowest price i5 that cost you 189…. the 8350 only runs you 200. so even on older games it was barely keeping up with the price/performance area(tho slightly losing) and now in newer games that same processor will be getting huge perfomance increases that allow it to start competing with 500$ processors…… total ripoff huh?

            don’t you mean like 50 fps more. the 8350 oc at 4.8ghz can’t even beat a 4670k normal stock. lol you amd fan boy’s do make me feel. get some real components you bum.

          • Joshua

            You act as if you invented Intel. If you want a gaming computer AMD is the way to go. You get more bang for the buck, It’s just that simple. You can call people “bums” but the fact renames AMD is the better choice for just a gaming computer. If your going to be doing computer computing and or video editing then all means go for Intel. Yes some people are on a budget and need to spend less money one computer parts. That my friend is called responsibility. Some people have bills and family to support. From the looks of your Facebook you seem to live alone with a cat. I’m sure you have a little extra spending money to spend. That is your choice to over pay for a product you like. So instead of calling people “bums” try to understand that not everything you like is the best. People have different opinions and different experiences. I don’t know what your walk in life withheld but being a bully will not solve it. Maybe you should stop being a “bum” yourself and updated that 0.5 Mp camera and don’t be a “bum” and buy your tv at Walmart. If anyone is a “fan” boy it’s you! You have a xbox 360… lol…..

          • Guy Parris

            how is amd the way to go for gaming when they get pumped by nvidia and intel in games you talk some rubbish let me tell you. lol I have my own place with my gf and the cat. as for the t.v it’s a sony bravia 1080p smart t.v so it’s none of your yanky walmart rubbish. phones don’t really bother me all I need is to text and phone. I’m not being a bully at all. all I’m saying is amd is garbage there cheap for a reason and it’s not the best bang for the buck because they get hammerd like I said by intel and nvidia. a bit strange you going on my facebook though bit of a creep if you ask me. here’s a nice little review for you to see sense about amd.

          • Joshua

            Congrats on your accomplishments! I’m sure your girlfriend is vary proud of you. You can post you facts and reviews about AMD and Intel but it does not change the fact it’s a better bang for the buck.

        • Brantyn Gerik

          1. very few games actually run at 60fps on current consoles
          2. you are correct that you probably dont have any noticeable kind of input lag as that promega person had said
          3. An intel i5-3570k is roughly the same price ($20 more retail) and generally outperforms the 8350 (exceptions being photo rendering and encoding as well as fps in games whilst recording). Nvidia is also targeting a more enthusiast market with their higher cards at the moment. nvidia 680s are going for as low as $320 at the moment and compete HARD with the 7970 for the same price. Factor in that in games with physx, you have to turn it off on the nvidia cards to have a fair analysis, your description of nvidia is actually quite far off…Your fanboyism is showing as you disregard the competition that intel and nvidia provide to amd. I WISH amd was more competitive right now because their lack of performance is what has allowed nvidia to raise prices so high because for the high end models, they really have no competition yet. Have you even looked at the fx 9590? It’s an utter disgrace in terms of price:performance ratio compared to intel at the moment

          • SAimNE

            actually the i5 is only outperforming the 8350 because nothing was utilizing all 8 cores. as we’ve just seen this game is doing that…. and put it fairly close in frames per second as a processor that cost more than double it’s price.

            like it or not the 8350 is actually a solid choice for the new gen of games, as is whatever amd brings out for the next generation. Also you have to remember that at least as far as this goes the high end amd cards will be getting a VERY large performance boost in the near future. these results most likely already implement nvidias low level api tech…. and soon mantle will enter the mix, and by everything i’ve seen about it so far, it’s a monster compared to what nvidia already had on the table to give it an edge.(bf3 used nvidias api to give the cards a bit of a boost, while amd really didnt have anything for god knows what reason…. i like the products but they can be dumb as bricks at implementing them sometimes -_-)

        • Hemligt

          Consles have around 25 – 30 fps :) normaly

        • rushaoz

          Seems like you’re really angry and deeply feel you have an inferior rig to that of an Intel/Nvidia setup. If you we’re satisfied or not angry, you wouldn’t jump on the internet to scream about it to a bunch of people who give no fucks.

          Also, you ARE getting mouse lag at 60 fps. You just don’t know it. Go into your BF4 or BF3 console and type gametime.maxvariablefps 59 and you will feel a difference and your K/D will probably increase. I didn’t know I was getting mouse lag up until a few months ago and I’ve been playing BF3 since release.

      • Brantyn Gerik

        “input lag” as it is more well known as, often comes from video settings and monitor setup rather than hardware specifically. You provide no argument for what could cause the input lag. considering a high fps for a movie is now 48fps (the hobbit being an example i can think of) 60 fps is more than adequate considering most current console games run at 30 fps (skyrim, gta, bf3 etc.) with the exception of the call of duty games which run at 60 on current gen consoles

        • promega

          Brantyn, I told you how to see it for yourself. play a game like CS that you can set the max fps to, and that most computers can run at pretty high fps. Play at 150 fps, then set the max to 30. you will feel it in the mouse. Do that then tell me I have no argument. 1% of the people that read this know exactly what I am talking about, you are not in that 1 percentile. You are a normie, and noob that I read like a book in video games. You are the ones that call me hacker, why because you cannot fathom such fast reflexes while playing on your 30fps setup. Ask any professional FPS gamer if high FPS is important. It affects, input, registration, and mouse fluidness. It is very very expensive to achieve over 140 fps with some games, hence why EA shoots for 60 fps. And lets stop talking about consoles, they are garbage. I love the argument tho,’” some games on consoles run at 30 fps, so you don’t know what your talking about”. BEST RATIONAL EVER.

          I couldn’t always afford high FPS rigs, and they wont make you magically amazing. FPS only really matters in FPS games, and maybe racing games (like track mania).

          FPS has nothing to do with what you see, and everything to do with mouse butter. PROMEGA STANDARD 140fps. LIVE BY IT. It used to be 120, but I raised the standard since I run at a higher dpi 950x 1050y with todays mousepad technology (higher y axis for recoil control, you get used to it). I highly recommend the Razer Destructor II mousepad, but stick with a Logitech G400. Remember kids, lazer is trash, optical is breast.

            “Play at 150 fps, then set the max to 30. you will feel it in the mouse.”

            Thats because there arnt enough frames renderd. Has nothing to do with mouselag. Its a FPS issue that’s making ur mouse feel laggy. How can u feel a differenc of 6ms when there is just 1 frame shown every 10ms?

            PLease do ur homework my son…

        who really gives a shit about anything over 60 fps? fuckin egotistical nerds is who. you’re the guy who faps over how smooth a game animates and how there’s no tiny insignificant frame spikes in his play. You know what normal people do? buy an adequate machine/parts, and play games just to play the fucking games, not to say ‘hey I get 100 more fps than you!’ wow what difference does it make? Do you even know what night and day is? when was the last time you actually used your legs to move further than the kitchen and back to your pc?

            i dont really find it surprising for the ps4, hardware in it is actually pretty interesting and worthy of an entry level gaming pc…. very surprised the xbox360 pulled it off…. it basically has the performance of desktop a10 by itself…. impressive for an iGPU to say the least, but not exactly capable of playing the latest titles at any decent quality

          • Bran

            I was speaking strictly regarding the current gen.

        • promega

          Actually its 24-60 depending on the title. TV’s have built in frame adding technology that smooths out the image. a 24fps x 4=120hz TV running at 60hz. the true hz of the 120hz tv is 60, butt can be overclocked to 70hz. Game Mode and equiv take off the frame doubling in TV’s which takes out mouse lag that usually happens do to the third party processing of the TV. Mouse lag is caused by TV software/hardware, low hz monitors that are vsynced, and mice running at stock windows polling rates. I’m guessing he was getting 60fps, because no one thinks 30 fps is smooth. 60fps is possible on a xbox360 and a ps3. 60fps is smooth to a novice, but laggy as hell to a advanced FPS’r/PRO.

    • promega

      crazy how times change right? Hyper threading used to cost a frame or two that’s why people hated it. Say you got 110 in a game, with hyperthreading you would get 108. Bought time they figured their shit out though. Now lets see them do something with pci express 3.0. I’ve seen graphs that there is like a 10-25fps gain in rigs that are already rendering over 120 fps, but like a 2 fps gain on say a 60fps rig. I guess it’s exponential. My MSI Afterburner OSD says my bus is like at 8-10% load in bf3, I don’t know if that is the same thing, I’m guessing so.

        I have tryed.. It diden’t help at all.

        • promega

          Try using a different power connecter from your power supply if it has one. Some rails can be flaky, if it takes 2 6pins/8pins use 2 different power rails rather than one rail with 2 connects split off of it. It could be a power issue.

          You could also try making your own fan profile in a program like afterburner, set it to use 90-100% fan speed after 50c, there could be a chip on the videocard that is overheating even though the temps are within spec.

          Try raising the voltage of your video card a little, or down clocking the gpu and ram a little.

          It could be a bad ram stick or an overheating CPU aswell… I would look at the power to the video card and the card itself first.

  • Trajanusch

    FX-6300 + 8GB 1600mhz RAM + 7950 3GB Twin Frozr III = 15-20 FPS on all settings. Doesn’t matter if I set in on Ultra or Low, all give the same FPS.

    • N0Taqua

      I have same issue, FX-8350 and GTX680 4GB, can’t get anythin gover 30FPS on any graphics settings. And Geforce experience tells me that I don’t meet minimum requirements to optimize settings.

  • John Williams

    965BE 8GB RAM 6970 ATI 2GB It never goes over 30 (low to ultra), playable, but at certain points drops to 10-15 for 1-2 seconds, then resumes to 25-30. Some say I could upgrade the GPU and not have to build a new rig. This is my BF3 machine, works fine, always get 50-60 fps. Swore I was finished with AMD and would spend $$$ for i7 setup, but now am wondering if maybe a lower cost AMD is good after all! I’ll wait for the official release and see what gives.

  • promega

    I like how people drop what CPU they are using but not what clock it is running at.. Useless information. Let me give you guys an example of what your posts should look like:

    I get 60-90 fps with all low settings, and 30-70 fps at ultra. (1080P resolution)

    My setup is:
    gtx 780 @ 1.2ghz
    i5 2500k @ 4.5 ghz, with 8gb of ram

    This is how you give information in benchmark form. My same setup runs bf3 at 110-200 fps, I get about 75-100 fps at stock CPU clocks in bf3. My CPU overclocked beats any CPU not overclocked (give or take a few fps)…. This to me is a huge difference. All your 60 fps generating craPC’s are the reason mouse acceleration exists. 60fps is a horrible benchmark to make a goal, it should be 140. And dont give me crap about what the human eye can see or monitor refresh rates. If you are playing with vsync on with a monitor that is under 144hz, you have no business playing FPS games.

          If you consider everyone who doesn’t want to spend 2k euros (because that’s what you’ll need to stabilize at over 144 FPS on BF4) on a computer a “novice”, then you’re an idiot. Plus, you’re an even bigger idiot if you consider that just because someone has a 120Hz monitor instead of 144Hz he has no business playing any FPS game.

          And by your own definition, your setup is shitty! You can’t even reach 100 FPS at low, so since it goes under your “144Hz vertical sync” rule, it’s shitty. Because what’s the point of having a 144Hz instead of 120Hz (which you consider shitty) if you can’t even max the 120Hz.

          • promega

            LOL take a reading class if you want to trump somebody with linguistics. Read my posts again kid, I state that the promega standard will not magically make you a better player. I was amazing the first week I played counter-strike 14 years ago. It’s like my DNA was coded for trolling nubs in fps games, as far as I am concerned FPS games exist for me, and me only. You are just a tourist trying to live my life little boy. If you keep reading my posts you might gather that BF4 is not the only game I play…. And if you don’t think I will be buying more GTX 780′s to achieve 140fps, you are a foolish man. I am waiting a few months to see if its needed, based on game modes I like, maps, optimizations from updates. No you are not a nub if you don’t have a system that can achieve 140fps, you are a nub, when you brag about 60FPS and think your system has zero mouse lag. Get real kid, my 144hz monitor is for counter-strike, and soon BF4 (if I decide that’s the game I will take on next), would be fun to rape the kids on blacklight retro, when it hits the PS4. I think you read things how you want to read them, there is a strong chance all your friends think you are an Ässhole behind your back. I was amazing at FPS games at 20 FPS, but why drive a pinto (or brag about it while doing so), when you can afford a lambo. Keep it real kids, and tip the waiter.

    Well all these benchmarks are nice, but I don’t know how they got all that hardware running smooth enough to even do benchmarks. The game freezes for 1/20 of a second or so constantly, though I’m locked at 60 fps otherwise. There are TONS of people having problems like this, and others getting 15 fps with similarly-powered rigs.

    • promega

      whats your setup

      • Soup

        i5-4670k @4GHz
        MSI GTX 760 Gaming
        311.40 beta drivers
        Windows 7

        • promega

          Do you have just 3GB of ram? I have 8. Windows 7 was really gittery, win 8 flawless. WIN8 is a must for bf4.

          • Soup

            8 GB here too. I have read about several people having much better luck with Windows 8, but that shouldn’t be the case once DICE fixes the problem.

          • promega

            I hope your right, cuss win8 sucks. It also has a backdoor that allows the US goverment to access your computer without you knowing, and the service cannot be turned off.

  • promega

    There was another BF4 beta update last night, seems like less lag spikes. There was also some windows updates. So far everything I am reading points to windows7 being the stuttering issue.

    Below is everything I found to support the windows 7 issue. I got service pack 1, but dxdiag shows directx 11 not 11.1, I guess it still has most of directx11.1, but I think the optimizations still cant be fully utilized with the windows 7 kernel.

    Win 7 64bit no problems here.. i7 2600k@ 4.7Ghz, Duel GTX 570′s @ 880/1760/2000 8 gigs ram @1866Mhz 9-9-9-28 t1

    Settings are on ultra running 1920×1080 minimum frames ive seen 45, max 180, avg around 75..

    BTW its known that windows 8 is just vista version#2 and I for one will never install windows 8.. If yer running slow or stuttering in windows 7 then you have a configuration problem, don’t blame the OS on your noobness..

    EDIT: ok I stand corrected, I guess BF4 was optimized with direct x 11.1 in mind..

    Johan Andersson, Technical Director on Frostbite at DICE

    “We use DX11.1, there are some optimizations in it (constant buffer offsets, dynamic buffers as SRVs) that we got in to the the API that improves CPU performance in our rendering when one runs with DX11.1. This will be in BF4.”

    looks like bf4 runs way better on win 8..

    • promega

      My only concern is the benchmarks with windows 7 and 8.1 might already be outdated with the new updates.. probably not though.

    @promega….

    why soo eager to prove you are better than everyone else???

    • promega

      Just that 60fps nanananana really gets my goat. It shouldnt be the standard. So many wannabe tryhards competing in the race but none know anything about the bike they are using. You are kind of a waste of my fingers, you have a kid, you don’t game.

      I figured out 60 fps was shit 14 years ago, why with the powers of the internet so many people still have not got the memo.

      • David Holt

        yeah i have a kid i and i do game remember there are 3 people within this equation one dad (moi) the child (him) then the mother (her) so mother takes child father games… simple equation…

        plus i think i know you.. or have encountered you on many occasions.. didn;t you get banned from cs:source for aimbotting??? XD

        • promega

          lol no, I don’t hack. If you play counter strike, you know who I am. I doubt there is anyone in the world that has played CS as much as I have. My old roommate says I was averaging 120 hrs a week for a while… lol All day everyday is what I used to say. I would treat my posts as gospel when it comes to config, I know what I am talking about. I have been banned from thousands of servers for “hacking” though through the years…. I don’t hack, I am just insainly fast. I also kill aimbotters, they have nothing on me. How? Well that will cost you $$, my strats are expensive.

  • xToFxREAPER

    looking decently close to my system, lightning 770 running at 1411mhz core with 8ghz memory a 3770k @ 4.8ghz and 16gb of 2400mhz gskill ram and i average roughly 70 fps at 1080p :)

  • resolve

    For all those who are wondering, I own a Alienware M17x R4 (I travel alot), 3940XM, HyperX 16GB 1600MHZ, 680M 2GB, 120HZ monitor.

    I currently run the game on auto settings, I overclocked the CPU to 4.2GHZ, temps shoot up to 85C max, but it’s nothing major, I am currently getting around 45FPS minimum on a 64 man server, and around 90-120FPS Maximum, the auto setting puts everything on high except for two things which are on ultra, texture and detail.

    Extreme cores do VERY well with BF4 it seems. and for those who are actually saying you need 100FPS+ for the 120HZ to work, it is not true, I used to own multiple 120hz monitors and you need more than 30FPS for it to notice a difference, it’s the smoothness that will be noticed, I have tested it myself, and the optimum FPS that you require is at LEAST 60FPS, for those who say that you need 120FPS for 120HZ, it is not true, just a myth.

    NVIDIA+Intel are dominating the market now, the CPU+GPU bundles are just too ridiculous for AMD/ATI to catch up, they’re trying to compete with them by releasing a product everytime they are, they need to take their time refining their stuff before they release it, I have no hate towards AMD/ATI, it’s just they’re rushing things too much, but at this time for now, NVIDIA and Intel will have the market, AMD/ATI are there for the people who have a small budget, if you have money to splurge all over the place, NVIDIA and Intel is for you.

    • promega

      No better way to tell the world that you are playing PC games with an over priced pre built system you couldnt build yourself than to be dropping a name like Alienware/dell/bestbuy/hp…

      • resolve

        Well no shit, can you build a laptop yourself? I highly doubt you can buy all the parts and build it yourself without passing it’s price point. Alienware and their desktops are shit, but their laptops aren’t too bad.

        Not to mention, you moving to a 144hz monitor, are you fucking kidding me? 120hz and 144hz, there is no difference whatsoever, the extra 24hz is nothing, so don’t tell me it’s overpriced when you went overkill on a monitor.

        Also, you’re not good. at all. Telling everyone they’re scrubs and shit doesn’t make you good, for all we know, you could be the worst player who ever touched fps. Which you are, as how you act like a 12 year old, telling people how good you are, go back to call of duty, oh wait, you need your parents to buy you it.

        • promega

          I dont play on laptops, and I dont recommend doing so with FPS games. You are a scrub.

        • promega

      • Kevin Dargie

        You say anyone who has ever played Counter-Strike knows who you are? I have no idea who you are bud. I’m good friends with resolve and I’ve played since 99 original MOD. I’ve also been on premiere/invite times such as Legends, XOXO, Vindicated, Hyper, and a couple of main teams that made invite placement. The biggest being insomnia. Now I’m sure you have heard of a couple of those teams and I still scrim on the Dynamic Scrim Team with Adren and a few others (who resolve also knows). Neither one of us (nor Adren) knows who you are and he is considered one of the TOP CS professional players in all of NA. You look and sound like a complete tool. Put your hat on straight and back your shit up with proof. You played that many hours a week to become pro at CS? What a joke man, I worked a job, played on a travel hockey team and still played on an Invite and CEVO P team. True gamer has nothing to do with the amount of hours you put into your games but what you take from them to share experiences with others. Resolve has a laptop because he travels (in the military).. pretty sure there is no such thing as a custom laptop you build yourself. You an build custom laptops online and pick the hardware you want (which he did), but you can absolutely not buy individual parts at random and piece them together. Once again, gave your name a good search throughout Legit-Proof.com’s database (which I helped develop for the CAL and CEVO crawlers), it can’t seem to find anything other than you playing one season of Open in CAL. So where is this top contender you keep speaking of. Someone is a bit egotistical. Go back to school and do something with your life. Clearly not pro, nor will you ever be.

        • promega

          I dont scrim kid. I have yet to find players worthy of my team. I play competitive mode in CS GO, hence why I got to rank 11 till I started banging some chick and went on a long vacation, now I am rank 1000 or something lol. I got screenshots though in my steam profile. The worst players are scrim stars, name dropping clans, communities and leagues. I have played many professional players 1v1, they dont win. They rage quit. You might be a awper? I got to rank 11 without EVER awping lol I was the only one up there that didnt awp. Such a easy gun, with zero strat. Why dont you put your money were your mouth is like the good ol ultimatearena.com days before xfire bought them out. Kid you are nothing. Learn to wrap your corners instead of strafing out of them.

          PS if you play games sober, your pathetic, grammer? really, sorry I dont have my sister behind me proof reading everything I am typing. I type fast and some times thoughts get jumbled.

          Questions how many times a day does a fan beg you to come into a server and pwn some nubs for them? Do you even have fans? Sit down.

          Dictated not read.

          • resolve

            Okay, I have to correct you, because apparently you can’t spell for your life.

            don’t, didn’t, you’re, grammar*

            and what the hell? I wouldn’t even talk until I see you going to LAN and winning money, hell I wouldn’t even say I’m professional until you prove yourself in ESEA, which I guarantee you would get shit on 24/7.

            Kids like you who talk shit about how good they are offclient, and then go on client and suck ass.

            Why don’t YOU put your money where you mouth is?

            Show me some proof.

            PS: And by the way, CS is a TEAM GAME.

          • promega

            LOL CS is not a team game, the biggest ploy ever perpetrated on the American public. I dont need to prove anything, you know my name, I told you theres screenshots.. Look me up in steam silly. ESEA is total trash, didnt a dude with no arms win a money tourney the other day in that little kid league. Everyone that I have ever had tell me that ESEA is where the pro gaming is, was under 16. Na I’ll stick to comp mode. speling and grammer are a gurls best frande. Attacking someone on grammer and spelling is just plain pathetic. Ur a waste of my fingers kid. There will be no more responses from me, just tears, since you cut so deep with your burns and actualities. I repeat you are nothing, and always will be. I’d play 5v1 all day long if people would do it. Too much pride, no one wants to get aced that many times…

          • Kevin Dargie

            TROLL ALERT LOLOLOLOL YOU ARE RANK 11??? LOL OMFG GO HOME LITTLE KID! I’m Legendary Eagle Master in competitive Matchmaking, thats 4 ranks above you and 3rd from the highest (global elite). ESEA little kids league? give me a break you have no idea what you are talking about you are just spewing shit out of your mouth. Everyone that plays invite division at esea are over the age of 20 and all of them have proven themselves at LAN. Please stop responding you have no idea what you are saying and almost everyone here who has played CS or NOT, just by reading your replies can tell how bad you are. You can’t even spell grammar*. Stop yourself before you get hurt young man. Either that or you can add me on steam, just google kevindargie steamcommunity. I’ll gladly play with you and show you what a good player looks like.

          • promega

            you wanna put some money on that, like a 1v1, I can rent a nfo server anytime. you can pick the cs.

    • promega

      Oh and I never touched base on your you dont need 120fps on a 120hz monitor. PROOF YOU ARE A FULL ON RETARD. You didnt notice a difference because you dont have a fast brain. I will take the pepsi challenge any day. 120hz is for 800dpi and lower, 140 is the standard, well promega’s no mouse bog standard. Andwhen you say you have a 120hz monitor, your talking about one spec, vertical and horizontal run at diff speeds, alot of the times one is at 80 and the other is at 120, you can claim 120 all you want but I call it 80. Do some research before you buy another chit monitor.

      • resolve

        So you tell people on the internet you bang more women than they do? really.

        Read what you just wrote, you just told the world you’re better than everyone, gifted? talented? Why don’t you join the military? I guarantee your attitude would change, if not, they’d rip you a new asshole.

        Your TAG means shit if your attitude is this bad, I mean really? I didn’t have a problem with you until I saw you calling people “dumb” and telling them you’re better than them, and this really isn’t a troll, I’m saying what’s true, basically if you want an example of how you are, imagine someone telling you they’re better than you in every single way, and then calling you scrub because you don’t play games 150 hours a week, people have jobs, they don’t have time to play 12-18 hours a day.

        And your 120hz monitor will refresh 120hz no matter what your FPS is, the smoothness comes from the panel side, opposed to FPS. It’s up to the person really, some people cannot tell 120hz from 60hz, and some can, ever since I went 120hz, I never touched 60hz every again.

        And one last thing, you cannot read people, you can read their body language and behavior but most people do unpredictable things that does not match it at all.

        • promega

          I told you and I’m not responding, just tears, and last word, last word. dammit im getting sucked in.. and unpredictable? I disagree, I think there is like 200-2000 personality templates, that can even be generalized down to 5 personalities/playing styles. Look up people like Athene, he was like the best in the world at a few games, and then he went to poker.. There is roll over. I’m not to shabby shooting real guns. My mouse is so dialed in, its like an extension of my body. Anyways this convo is getting to deep without having any beer, so good day sir, you win. You are right about everything, I am a bad person and some alien probably wont clone me because of my bad ways. Hmm what if you grew thyroid tissue in a lab and encapsulated it a fairly unbreakable container and rail gunned it in space. I say grow in a lab because you would want to do it often, a lot of it probably will get lost to asteroids, and planet gravity… Space will freeze it, and maybe in a billion years or so some alien will intercept it and make a new human clone army of you. I think the thyroid has a full copy of our dna… or just shoot your zygotes into space. Last word Last word.

And I can play the latest games at at least high settings and I’m fine with that.
