I'm actually very disappointed in DICE over this, they claimed to have made some changes in the way they were going to be releasing patches for BF4 PC (smaller ones and more frequent) but now we find out that they're actually tied to the same schedule as the consoles AGAIN, which will slow it down significantly, since patches for consoles have to go through some kind of certification process.

When I play in Windowed or Borderless mode I get no stuttering but for whatever reason when I alt-tab, Battlefield 4 has priority over window layers. So basically I can't alt-tab during the end of the round screen which is really annoying. The "Show Desktop" feature on the bottom right of the task bar doesn't help either. This is with V-Sync turned on for all screen modes. I am currently using 314.22. I have tried the newest drivers but they give the same result with the added bonus of causing my computer to lock up and freeze my mouse.
I also have the same problem I did in Battlefield 3. Some things don't render until I get right up next to it. An example would be me driving in a tank down a road and the fence/railing in front of me would just kind of pop up as I move along the road. I also don't see how people are getting 80fps on High with 2500k's and 560 Tis. I get 60 fps solid on Low but as soon as I even attempt to go any higher my fps tanks down to the 45 ~ 50 range. My current GPU is a 560 Ti @ 880 with 1GB of ram.

Its the other way around, the Russian site did the benchies correctly at a lower rez. CPUs should be benched at lower rez to eliminate video as bottleneck. That's how its always been done, it still boggles my mind why 90% of review sites bench CPUs @ 1080p

Adjust your network smoothing factor, I have no problem with netcode.

I'm pretty good at flying already however on the test range I'm not really accurate in the slightest.
I was watching some youtube videos of the console version and it looked like they had much more accurate controls than mine with KB+M.
Ohh it certainly does make a difference, I remember in BF2 we could tell immediately when someone was using a joystick with jet, those were the worst jet whores.
