Do you suffer from the BF4 memory leak issue? - Page 9

post #81 of 128
I've been following and fighting this problem for several weeks now, even before the big Mantle unveiling, and while I've tried everything I could find - suggestion wise - I'd still have the X64 client crash during the first hour of the game. Then I'd deal with it every-other game of BF4. I'd often have it as well on other games, from other vendors, so I'm fairly sure it's not specifically a BF4 problem.

My OS 'was' Windows 8.1 x64.

As for hardware I run an AMD FX-8120, 16 GB RAM, and a 3072MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series card, and it's happened using Mantle, and DX 11.1 as well.

I have BF4 installed on its own SSD, and my OS is installed on its own SSD, with everyday productivity and graphics applications installed on still another SSD. All storage is done to a stand-alone USB 3 external HDD.

I'm not that technically inclined, as you can probably already tell, but I do know enough basic and intermediate stuff to get myself out of trouble in most cases .... and in trouble in other cases.

I got fed up with it all, and reinstalled Windows 7 x64 SP1, and honestly, no matter if it's on Mantle or DX settings, I've played up to 4 - 5 hours of the game, and then did things on the computer for my wife and grand kids, and not once have I had the 'memory leak' problem, in over a week now, since reinstalling Windows 7.

I don't know, but it seems to me that the majority of the issue starts with Windows 8 / 8.1 ... I mean, since I reinstalled Windows 7, I haven't even had one issue with BF4 as far as the topic at hand, or most everything else and otherwise? thinking.gif

I'm still following this closely, as I've actually gotten quite attached to Win 8.1, and I'm just waiting on a solution so I can go back to the OS.

i had the problem with windows 7 but far less of the time and it was just a gradual slowdown in fps and eventually using 99% ram - i actually upgraded to windows 8 when hearing how good battlefield runs on it rolleyes.gif

the windows 8 leak happens more often and alot faster - with windows 7 i could just exit the game and restart when noticing it acting up. on the battlefield forums some people with nvidia cards have it happen too. but overall the hardest hit at the HD5000 and HD6000 users.

i hope this new 8.1.1 update or 8.1 sp1 or whatever they want to call it will help.

Yeah .... I'm with you there thumb.gif .... What's funny to me, is that during the 'BETA' just a couple of weeks before the 'official' release dropped, is when I first used Win 8 to run BF4 .... same situation as you sort of ... I was paying too much attention to what the (term used loosely in a lot of cases) 'Reviews' were declaring about the game running / was going to run like Sasquatch through the forest in Nikes if installed on Windows 8 / 8.1.

I didn't have any problems with the 'BETA' at all ... the guys I game with, who were still on Windows 7 - they were almost catatonic with frustration.

Thankfully they didn't listen to me and (LoL!) upgrade to Win 8 ..... I'd still be hearing about it. redface.gif

I have the HD 6 series as well .... or, rather 'had' it on my backup PC with Win 8X64 still. I changed that one to a 600 series OC Edition card from EVGA, and while the problem slowed up some, I still get it more so than not. doh.gif

I decided to blame it on Windows 8 and just fall back and regroup until there is a definitive answer ... or fix found.

Greetings Thracks, i currently maintain this thread on the BF4 support forum:
http://answers.ea.com/t5/Battlefield-4/INFO-REQUEST-NP-Pool-Memoryleak-PC-only-updated-March-18th/m-p/1951455#U1951455

I can confirm that the memory leak issue is not resolved, although this might be another memoryleak and not the one you thought solved back then.

Utilmately it's a win8 issue but since it only happen in bf4 the BF team should be able to report that problem to windows to fix it.. I'm guessing, only speculation though lol, and yea AMD/DICE I mean. cause apparently it affect only AMD users, I'm also guessing the Nvidia users have a different kind of memory leak like LAN one ? who knows !

EDIT: NVM that guy says even win win 7 64 he have it ... mmh, damn I was nearly gonna buy a copy of win7 64 so much it was annoying !

my post on answerHQ:

redface.gif didn't know it also happened in win 7 64.. that's crazy, but what I found the most crazy is how the leak is still here for me when it happens even after a restart, like WOooW I need to like reinstall AMD drivers to get rid of it, i going Nvidia for my next card that's for sure though.

And also the last time it happend, actually, while installing the latest AMD drivers I got a bluescreen of death, which, actually when restarting literally screwed up my windows I had blue screens upon blue screens couldn't do anything.. so yes it's a serious issue and it can break your windows grr.. so I had to do a system restore and since that day I make sure I run that script everytime I play.. and yea didnt had a blue screen in a week so it's really related to that issue, totally crazy I'm telling you.

:mad:Yeah I just started having this issue after a fresh install of windows 7 64 on quad titans and 65gb of ram with a 3970x @ 5.1ghz!

Game struggles to give me response immediately getting into the multiplayer map. "If" the game decides to work it hiccups here and there after a few minutes of non responsiveness while trying to select classes and or squad. After the first match (if I can play) all issues are gone with any kind of hiccups/lag!

I really do not know what the issue is since this has been happening since the new OS install......

I am currently running the second to newest drivers for nvidia since the newest does not seem to have enough improvements for me to step up, but I might be doing so since there is not a work around at the moment.

Seriously what the hell could have been the culprit.......!?tongue.gif

God knows.. Nvidia, win 7.. seems like the problem is on many different platforms. check this : http://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_4/comments/1xftur/npp_memory_leak/ thats the only thing that helped me with that problem.. it shuts down bf4 as soon as the leaks gets too big.

I recently installed a new SSD with a fresh windows 7 install on the 14.3 drivers and now I'm getting a memory leak issue where the BF4 file continues to fill my physical memory to the point it will BSOD. I never had this issue before the new SSD and its really driving me crazy...
