An i5 @ 4.2ghz is good for at least 90 fps average...

How many people have a 3930 or 3960? Thats right effectively no one.
Join a server with toms hardware personnel and follow the same course.
Yep, about to pull the trigger on a Qnix 2710 matte.
The patches lowered my performanceAnd how many people own a 3930 or 3960 in the world?
I'm having a 33% performance loss since the last patch.
I bet its a parameter and not the actual coding structure of windows 8 that gives a performance boost.
You're missing out on some great graphics. Id recommend skipping to 1440p as its only $300.
BF4 is effective at 8 threads. If he bench BF4 on a 4 threads CPU that is where the problem is. You're putting limit on game fps. Now explain why my framerate is higher even if I set my CPU at 4.2Ghz and the IPC isn't high compare to quad core 8 threads (3770k, 4770k) CPU anyways. i5 is 4 threads.
and veyron1001, you misunderstood the idea on benching 16 GPUs. In order for a proper real bench is to allow how far the GPU can push and it should not have any bottleneck from CPU. BF4 is a 8 threads game now, why would the bencher end up using 4 threads just cut the performance 50%. It already shows lower performance on TITAN than have it on 8+ threads CPU.
