So my problem is that BF4 is just unplayable.
I tried many fixes core unpark ,reinstalled drivers and so on..
On Ultra i get 80 fps with drops. On low i get to 200 fps with drops..
Both drops go down to low 10-30fps.

Also when i disable AA,HBAO,MSAA its more playable but doesnt help me much.

My rig is
i7 930 @2,8ghz (stock)
6gb ram currently working at 1066mhz
MSI R9 270X Gaming Edition
X58A-UD3R

Im thinking that it might be cpu bottleneck.

Some pics: (All maxed out here, almost same on low - 1080p)

It seems like you get frame drops when bigger events happens in the game. Overclock your CPU, if that doesn't help it would be problems over at DICE. I've heard they've had problems with FPS drops.

It shouldn't be your cpu, yes it is old, but it is still a beast when compared to todays standards

Make sure you have the latest drivers, which I think is 13.12

It's most likely an issue at DICE, but try to repair install of the game.

It looks like my sistem didnt recognize last installation. I reinstalled it now it shows 13.12. But same sh!t. Other games works nicely. Crysis 3 at all HIGH smooth gameplay.
Idk what it could be. I hope Mantle fixes it when it comes out.

Make sure you turn v-sync off, as that could cause stuttering
If that doesn't work, then its probably the game, since other games work smoothly.
It does have allot of bugs which dice are trying to fix before they release the mantle update, hopefully early next year

Well i think i fixed the fps drop. I installed windows 8.1 and on ultra i seem not to get under 45fps. Fps pretty same but no fps drop. So yeah. Now just wait till the mantle :)

Who could of thought the operating system was the cause for those fps drops. Maybe bf4 is more optimized for windows 8

Enjoy :)
