I think DirectX 11.2 has alot to do with the performance of BF4. Having 11.2 can make all the difference in the world in terms of performance. I really hate Windows 8, but I need BF4 to run smooth so its back to Windows 8 :-(

well if that works best for you go back to win8.
I played BOTH on win 8 and win7 - never noticed a difference. (Only by benching did I find out win8 had a very very minor difference in the overall FPS).

Playing wise - I play on win7. I can't stand the stupid win8 UI.
That said, if you want win8 to run more like win7, get startisback - I got a license myself for it - was super cheap via their site!

STILL doesn't mean I want to go to win8.
Until I see a HUGE difference between the two OS' will I ever "sacrifice my UI experience" for raw FPS gains.

Personally I think win9 (or whatever they call it) - will be the killer.

Is their any way hack wise to get DirectX 11.2 on Windows 7? And did Microsoft official say that DirectX 11.2 is not coming to windows 7?

@falcon26 windows 8 or 8.1?
i have no stutter with win7 and running in sli and i wonder how much of the stutter is caused by other's hardware and os set-ups.

Nop MS went the way of: "we're going to make it exclusive to win8", so people will be forced to buy win8 or make devs feel they "have to" dev on win8 -> aka: DICE
So as far as I'm aware, it's low level things that aren't able to be "hacked" or customised by any user, without breaking the OS.

It can't be hardware. In Windows 8 its perfect. In Windows 7 its like a choppy slide show sometimes. All the latest drivers as well. I actually goggled this problem. And in every case or review of W7 vs W8 99% of the reviewers said that DirectX 11.2 has a huge advantage over 11.1 and for the best possible game play of BF4 use W8. Dam it.. I too really hate W8 can't stand Metro...

dont trust any reviewers. look at the reviews for bf4, enough said.
it can be hardware and faulty/bad overclocks. there are too many people running win7 with NO problems to blame it on win7. latest drivers are not always a good thing.

Which "reviewers"
Uneducated, paid, bias reviewers?
Like rivalXfactor for example? lol....

I have no bias between the two OS' GAME WISE - if one ran better than the other, I would scream at people to be on win8.
All this "omg it's better" made me create that thread I linked before - and that thread was one of the world's first.
I really wanted to see for myself if I could "gain 40FPS by going to win8" as some idiots (like rivalxfactor) stated.

I don't believe it's hardware related, but I'm wondering if you're seeing a placebo after being brain washed by certain "reviewers".
I can only think of a few things: your hardware PREFERS the newer DX build OR drivers work better with your hardware on win7.

You got a single GPU 780 setup (from your rig) - so there shouldn't be any SLI etc issues.
Dunno mate, just do what's best for you, not best a sa "reviewer".

I stand behind my comment though: I saw literally no difference between win7 and win8. Fluidity and all that.

PS. Might be worth looking at unparking cores in win7.
