    So I removed EVGA precision 4.0, reinstalled 314.21 and BF3 is really smooth now. Installed EVGA precision 3.0.4 and overclocked and it's still smooth...

    So for you guys with the stutter in BF3 that didn't have it in 314.09... What EVGA precision version are you running? I too had no issues with 314.09 but 314.14 and .21 seemed choppy in BF3.

    I'm thinking it's something with EVGA precision 4.0 and the new sets unless someone has stutter with 314.21 that isn't running afterburner or precision at all?

    Did you close precision before you installed the new drivers? A lot of times if OC programs are running when you upgrade drivers (especially if you don't do a clean install) it will cause issues in games. I accidentally did this and I was getting 60 fps in bf3 with titan sli.

    Stupid question, have you tried without OSD? If not, try by disabling osd, even in app detection.

    I'm just trying to gather information - some people noticed the same thing as me... 314.09 ran BF3 fine but 314.14 and .21 made BF3 stutter, of those I'm trying to find out how many are using Precision 4.0.

    With PrecisionX 4.0 I've recently tried a lil experiment, i.e. I set hardware polling to 500, Max Pre-rendered always at 1 and have experienced smoother gameplay in all my benches and games.Just throwing it out there.

    i use msi afterburner 2.3.1 and got sutters with 314.14, i also use its OSD for 70fps limit.

    And 314.21 seemed smooth now after I re-enabled HPET in windows, i had it off before and it suttered really bad, unlike with 314.09..

    Could be a coincidence though, but now its kinda fixed with 314.21, also now i got this driectX error with 314.21 driver hang due to badly formed commnad, i didnt have that for a loong time, last time was with some 310.xx dirver :infinity:
