Ah ben colice!!!
Battlefield 4 beta? Crappy performance on Q6600 @ 3GHz, 4GB RAM, HD 7850 2GB OC: 20-30fps on LOW details in 1680x1050 - shame...uke2:
Yikes thats an old proc.
Yeah honestly the Q6600 is the culprit here. It's a big bottleneck for your system.
I'm very excited in seeing how much old/slow CPUs will benefit from the lower CPU overhead in Mantle. Lots of devs have complained about the performance hit DX11 has on the CPU.
Dice has also said that DX11.1 is improving the CPU performance
Old Socket 775 or not (check my rig ), I'm somewhat surprised. What is your BF3 experience like? What are your 3dmark11/13 scores?
I'm fully expecting playable framerates when I fire up BF4 for the first time. I may be delusional, but I don't believe so.
Set settings medium, and have fun.
This is performance I have with both these and 13.9 WHQL drivers on my setup.

No matter what I do, change resolution/video settings it's always the same.
Are you kidding me?:nerd: Battlefield 3 in 1680x1050, ultra details, both AA's are off and it's very playable and smooth like butter!
It is a beta driver with a beta game, but the stuttering kinda reminds me of RAGE when my old Phenom II couldn't keep up with s.treaming textures
Do you have your CPU OCd ?
It has to! 7970x2 all games smooth eyefinity! It is truly amazing
BF4 on high 60fps butter smooth
oced of course
Never OC'd it...
DICE responded with this:
"(PC) We received report of unusually low performances, and are currently looking into that as well. "
Setting the resolution scaling at 100% or lower in bf4 improved fps on my system.
Installed the 13.10B2 drivers and didn't see any improvement over the 13.10B.
In fact, I believe I experienced some short mouse stuttering in desktop when launching an app or game.
Anyway, uninstalled and reinstalled the previous 13.10B, fps is the same in bf4, 3dmark scores are slightly higher, or better.
Which seems strange since it's the 13.10B drivers with some added fixes which scores lower on all 3dmark tests.
Anyway, no difference in bf4 between these 2 drivers.
OC it then, those chips OC pretty well
They get super hot through, Hell need to have sufficient cooling capacity.
Im on 4.7GHz with a super hot 8350, using an old Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme £30 cooler
So long as he's not using the stock cooler, he should be able to crank it up some, probably get some extra from it without even touching the vcore
hey guys im kinda hesitant about installing another driver. i say this because i had one hell of a time fixing a bsod installing 13.10. do any of you guys know of a way to make the driver updating as smooth as possible?
I change Q6600 (@3600 with Zalman 9700) first time i tested BF3 with i2500k
Ill give them a bash tonight. Im hoping arma3 plays smoother as usual the game is a bktch to configure at ultra settings.
