have you done everything to not have this stutterings?
#1 use DDUL to unistall drivers, go into safe mode and delete all the files you have related to your old drivers
"Installing The AMD Catalyst™ Software Driver
Current driver MUST be uninstalled before updating to AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta driver. For detailed instructions on how to correctly uninstall or install the AMD Catalyst Software Suite".
#2 turn off V-sync / AA /
#3 restart your pc after enabling mantle, read the fine text at the bottom of the game menu when activating Mantle... "Restart Game for the option to take effect".
#4 turn off DXtory or Fraps is causing issue with mantle and bf4 some how... i read this here on OCN tho.
#5 If you still have stuttering problems and just formatt windows and reinsttal it and fresh 14.1 install made stuttering go away If you want to solve stuttering just format and reinstall windows and do a fresh driver install.
#6 if you have CF it will give you stuttering, just turn it off.
hope this collection of things help someone
