DICE has just released a brand new patch update for Battlefield 4 PC beta. The update weighs around 54 MB in size.
thank you dice.... this is the miracle patch we PC gamers were waiting for...
Sounds good. Can anyone confirm it performs better on nVidia-cards?
I can confirm my machine is running so so much better. i7 2600 560ti in SLI. Before bad frame drops and alsmot unplayable now 60+fps with minor frame drop most playable now.
Looking forward to trying tonight. Stopped playing before because of the poor performance. Even on low settings at 1080 couldn't get above 45fps and would frequently drop to 30. My specs aren't ground breaking but considering I could run BF3 on Very High/ultra at a steady 50fps+ I was expecting to run BF4 on Medium at a solid 60fps with no drops. Hopefully by final release this will be the case.
dice finally is understanding that patching a beta is even better then the full game.with bf3 they let patching go so long and many times fixes could have been done with little turnaround . bf4 is looking to be the best one ever and for a vet of the series that says a lot.
Can't wait to try it after work. BF4 ran great on my amd quad core but my fx 6 core was unplayable.. hopefully this patch gets me going on my fx machine. If someone can confirm this is running on a 6 core smoothly I would greatly appreciate it.
Hi everyone, I have a 6 core intel CPU (i7 970) and nvidia GTX 680. Run fine (50-60 fps) event before patches but with severe fps drops. After patch #1 a less fps drops but still some. I run all ULTRA with no anti-aliasing. Go BF4!
You do mean after 2nd patch right? Wow that's great if it's running on Ultra now! Thanks for the confirmation.
Haven't tryed yet the second patch, i'll try it tonight after work. The first patch didn't change much for me, but with my 6 core CPU it run nice, no CPU overloads. On the otherside GPU run at 90%!
Mine is running worse, I was hardly dipping below 60fps last night now its floating around 30 :( i7 3770k 7950
