on win8.1 vs win8!?
Show me a link.
Also what you said is slightly insulting - I'm not trying to be dishonest or anything - but "don't believe eerything you read on this thread" - why?
Still finding it hard to believe that win7 is only 5% (if that) worse than win8 / 8.1) for single GPU setups?
Thought to link another thread, which has been mentioned before here:
Where the person beforehand had stated: "windows 8.1 is a clear winner and win7 is useless", whereas with the very same link they had provided (see above) the performance was:
"The performance advantage, even at its highest of 6%, wasn’t enough to change the gameplay settings or make it look better under Windows 8.1"
EDIT: LMAO it was you...:

After the recent patched, both win7 and win8.1 don't crash. Very little now.
With that in mind - I have hardly been playing BF4. Got so frustrated of it after playing it for 100hrs and couldn't stand playing it with the constant glitches and problems I encountered - let alone the stupid implementations DICE thought would be a good idea (SUAV, EMP blur etc) - which have now consequently been fixed, due to outrage by players.
