Indeed. But that surprises me. I thought Win8.1 would have dominated there (as it did with my older benchmarks) where Win8.1 was marginally on top.
Here, it comes out on top, but with the mins - completely gets destroyed by Win7.

Man oh man oh man!
Epic win for me - as I'm a win7 gamer.

i only have something to say to this because it doesnt sound right at all. you may know what you mean but you didnt communicate it well.
you dont spend time at an average. the average of 100 and 50 is 75. 100 + 50 = 150/2 = 75. youre right, you dont spend time at your average. you spend 1/2 at 100 and the other at 50.
average framerate reports are to judge how well a video card/set-up does against another. besides, 2 identical set-ups will never give the same min, max or average.
with tri-fire 290x, i dont see why you give a rats ass.

When making an attacking dive i would also shoot the MG4 on the enemy.
You would be surprised howmutch suppression assists and kills one could get like this.

Now i'm running with C4.
When we where trying to secure Foxtrot ,
i asked him to go above the LAV wich spawns there after taking the point.
Dropped some C4 on it.
We couldn't get the point , so the enemy took the LAV.
Apparantly , you get over 800 points for a full LAV when you take it out biggrin.gif

So we left Foxtrot for what it was.
Once every time we went back to go back and place C4 on the LAV.
When we saw it in the field , i would blow it up biggrin.gif

Only in battlefield ,
right there biggrin.gif

Nice, but really it should be amended to "Only in Battlefield *WITH TEAMWORK" That is actually the kind of stuff that you dream about doing, but can't really happen unless you have some close teamwork, and nearly requires voice communication.

Played one hell of a match now.



We were down to 1 ticket left but were holding both B and C points. People were screaming 'DONT SPAWN' in the chat so that we wouldn't waste that ticket. Best game I've ever played. We bled that out from 30 on the enemy side.

And we were on 80 when the enemy was on ~300 tickets. Working together and securing flanks was just beautiful. The amount of shouting and profanity for ammo, revs and enemy callouts was just insane. If anyone wants to play on some SA servers (GMT+2) some time, feel free to add me - http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/user/DuckKnuckle/

with tri-fire 290x, i dont see why you give a rats ass.

I care because time above fps is important. In my case I care about time above 120fps because I game at 120hz. If in mantle I can stay above 120 fps for 99% of the time but in dx I can only do that 60% of the time than that matters to me. What doesn't matter is one card averaging whatever fps or whatever minimum it gets. If I am averaging 120 fps but for a significant amount of time I am at 75 fps I need to know that, and that is why the average is useless. Average tells you nothing. Min fps tells you nothing. Max fps tells you nothing. In the real world you want to know what fps you can maintain for a large portion of the time, and if it is a stuttering mess. Which is why fcat and bf4fta are actually useful.



That is why I said using a frame time analyzer is much better than the traditional "this card averages whatever fps". FTA will tell you exactly what is important I.e for this percent of the time you stayed above this fps. And for this long you had a frame rate spike etc...

you run tri-fire 290x's. if you cant maintain a constant minimum of 120fps at 1440p, that was a serious waste of $2000. you shouldnt even wonder if you are with that much power.
you may be referring to others but it sure seems like youre worrying about what you can do.

My SLI 680s on win7 - have been absolutely amazing so far. So proud of them.
Despite the 2GB VRAM - absolutely amazing!
I don't really hit under 60FPS at 1440p - and I was expecting much worse, when I upgraded to 1440p.

Dx 11 won't do it. I didnt pay that much btw. I got mine at msrp. 780 ti's wouldn't either prior to nvidia new betas. People way overestimate min fps. In addition who's to tell how long that min fps was?

Totally dubbed I apologize if you thought I was referring to you, I was actually referring to the 295x2 review. My point still stands though, min fps and avg are useless to me, and I'm not sure what they tell anyone especially in a game like bf4 where frame rate can be very server/map/population dependent.
