Extremely LOW FPS in BF4

I am having extremely low FPS in Battlefield 4, like on average 30FPS. This shouldn't happen at all since I have an i7 and a GTX 780 SC. I dunno what the problem may be but I would greatly appreciate any insight with the problem. For reference it averages this with ULTRA settings and with HIGH settings. Thank you.

  1. Can you please list your full system specs and also the resolution you are playing at?
  2. Full specs, "I have an i7" is pretty useless
    Did you install the drivers properly?

    Ok, I have an i7-3770K, GTX 780 SC,G.Skill X RipJaws 16GB RAM, ASUS Sabretooth Z77 MoBo, Corsair 750W Gold PSU. And I am running the game at 1080 at 60Hz.

  5. That's good hardware, might even say overkill for 1080p (graphics card).

    Try different games and see if there's low performance in other games beside that one, and report back.
  6. I'd check your Vsync settings both ingame and in the Nvidia control panel first

    If this happens with other games, do a clean reinstall of your drivers

    Would I need to turn Vsync to adaptive in the Nvidia control panel?

    Well in BF3 it never even drop below 60FPS. And in Arma 3 I usually get around 32FPS with everything on ultra, and in like fallout I don't think it even touched the number six in the tenths place so... and those are the games I usually play and all of them besides BF4 has serious FPS issues.

    Adaptive Vsync is the way to go, a clean driver reinstallation would really be worth trying

    How do I go about doing that? Clean install of it.
  11. Either download the latest driver (if you're not on it) and select the "clean installation" option

    or

    Uninstall your Nvidia driver from the control panel, use driversweeper and clean out the rest, and then do a clean install of the latest Nvidia drivers

    In this video it's AMD but the process for Nvidia is also similar

    Personally, I'm a bit skeptical about how well Geforce Experience works, I'd probably leave that out and tweak graphical options myself :lol:

    Do i uninstall the graphics driver? 3D vision driver?
  13. Just the graphics driver, you're not really using 3D vision so you could probably leave it alone
  14. You should set all the settings to default in the graphics settings.. then try
