bf4 windows 8.1

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i've been told that windows 8 and 8.1 give a decent fps boost in bf4, should i change to 8.1 from windows 7? will there be a fps boost in newer games in the future too?

Yes it is true, i saw around 70% jump in performance in the BF4 Beta simply switching to Win 8, however i had other issues with AMD drivers, so i went back to 7, i never got the game because of the mess it is in now.

The final build doesn't yeild that big of a performance jump.

I mean you may have issues with 8.1 within the game that you don't have with 7.

7 might be more stable compared to 8.1 on your system. Mileage will vary because the game is still in fucking BETA in my mind.

I also want to know the answer to this. Can anyone test it with bf4 at it's current state? Currently with win 7 with core unparked. Would I see a decent jump in performance going to win 8/8.1?
