So, I left vsync on, that turned out to be rather problematic. I turned it off and now my gpu is being fully utilized for most of the time. This still brings to question the lack of CPU usage, I guess it's just a good cpu, as it still gets around 65% used when my card is working 99% loaded.
haha this made me laugh. its not intel fan boyism to acknowledge that intel make superior processors. your processor is good you are correct but it is not as good as you like to think.
65% means that 4 cores are maxed and 2 are idle. BF3 doesn't utilize more than 4 threads, your CPU is bottlenecking.
false, bf3 will use more then 4 cores if you give it more then 4 cores. i routinely use 5 cores at 70% minimum.
