I believe you.

The problem was me not WANTING to believe you because I had just bought and gone through my 30 days w/ the i5. Also, I don't think I quite understand what you were doing as I was after more frames, MORE FRAMES!

Again, sorry man. I'm trying to work on being a better OCNer. biggrin.gif

I honestly don't think an i5 would give you less frames vs an i7 - from my tests there was no difference.

I noticed that I had to close battle screen or I would lose FPS frequently. HT wouldn't help?

As far as I can tell - nope.
Just reduces load. No one here has confirmed that there has been ANY FPS drop with HT OFF on their HT-able CPUs

Currently SLI on 680s and I must say - I'm hitting 100+ FPS
I'll bench next time.

Smooth I must say.

FUN FACT though:
When I let Afterburner "synchronise setting for GPU" - I noticed stuttering with my SLI setup in win7.
I removed that setting, then manually downclocked my 2nd GPU to be the same as the first GPU and ever since it has been perfect.

Again, would like to try on win8...but it doesn't boot the game - don't know what I have to do to make it run - did a repair install, checked for updates, left it on the browser to open the game for over 15mins....gave up after that - couldn't be bothered.

Maybe after some time I'll try win8 again and see if the crap game runs on it.

So I'll produce some BF4 1440p SLI 680 Win7 HT ON results.

Yea man i'm sure it runs better now, that was beta ages ago and on the first nvidia drivers biggrin.gif

well still a lot of people reported "I'm on SLI and the game runs a lot better on win8" - that was well after the game was released.

You can have 100fps, but have half of your frames take 1/60'th of a second - the result is the "smoothness" of only ~60fps with lots of jerks forward and weird stuttery motion. That's an extreme example, but 120fps on a 120hz screen is no good if a bunch of your frames are still displayed for as long as they would be at 50-100fps, which is an issue with some games and why a raw "fps" number, or average of the last like 50 or however many frames, is not good for telling a picture of performance or how smooth stuff is all of the time.

It's more and more of an issue the closer you get to perfection, the issues with motion clarity - a slow response time 60hz IPS screen from 2008 would have less obvious issues than a 1ms gtg rated tn at 120hz with a strobe backlight, even on the same experience, because the little bumps in the road stand out a lot more if there are not potholes everywhere, etc

All the more hate I have towards win8, just keeps growing.

Thats too bad, I never had any issues under 8 and now with 8.1 its just as good, no start up issues or crashes.

Same here, if I disable HT on my 2700K the performance as far as I can tell is the same.

Yeah neither did I! - I have no idea why all of the sudden BF4 isn't launching!?
I'll play on Win7 for a lil while and get some benches etc - then when I decide to try win8.1 - I might just migrate my win7 folder into the win8 one, so that it should eliminate any sort of problem.

I love my vg248qe, wonky colors + viewing angles and all biggrin.gif

waiting for that 1440p ~1-3ms gtg 120hz strobed ~22-27" that costs £100-300 instead of probably £800 (considering ROG swift releases at $700.. and vg248qe cost $255 when it was £275 here)
