I was playing a 45 player match in shangai and I opened MSI Afterburner because I would very from 25fps-80fps and I have a very good rig at least I think I do in my opinion was wondering it it was a possible cpu bottleneck but I think its just the game. it only uses 60-70% of my gpu. and about 55-70% cpu.

MY PC
cpu:fx-8350
GPU: R9 280x Asus DCU2 TOP
RAM: 16GBs Corsair vengeance 1600mhz
CPU cooler: H60 push-pull hottest while playing bf4 for an hour 47C
Case NZXT Phantom (Original)
HDD For game:segate 7200 rpm internal perfed to use SSD
MOBO: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 AM3+ (newest BIOS)
PSU: Corsair AX 850W (Gold certified)
SSDS: Samsung 830 (OS) 840 EVO
A 2TB green drive external

Tell me what you think my problem might be.

The computer may using your CPU as the Physix.

Go into the Nvidia Control Panel and set the Physix to your GPU.



Update your GPU's driver. Update all of your MOB's drivers.
Update Windows. If it has it, update the game.

Not only that, but BF4 doesn't use PhysX.

The likelihood is it is a CPU bottleneck. If the GPU usage is low, there is a bottleneck elsewhere that is holding back its performance.

My bad, for some reason I thought yo had a Nvidia card.

Check your Resource Monitor and see what has the most usage.

they both have about the same usage in singe player I average about 60 fps on ultra though I know multiplayer has a lot more for the cpu to handle.

Try setting all of the GPU's settings to best performance.
Also, update the video driver.
