Battlefield 4 Benchmarks - HT ON vs OFF - Win8.1 vs Win7 - New Nvidia 337.50 Drivers - Page 12

Great results!

So why say you prefer 337.50 over mantle?
Simple: Mantle is a great low-level API utilisation of GPUs, however it can only be "enabled" in certain games. It doesn't effect every single thing.
337.50 is nothing new, just a new driver. However it is a driver for DirectX. Thus can be utilised and used throughout every game that uses it (almost everything on windows is based on it -> as windows is behind DirectX).
If you ask me, nothing has changed in terms of low-level codec etc - it's just better optimisation of the GPUs with the OS. Thus it isn't game bound. It's OS bound.

I should also state that these results aren't to be compared with a mantle system (I think it's almost impossible to do so) - however the performance GAINS that were achieved by Nvidia's latest drivers are incredible - they provide "mantle-esk" performance gains. Huge gains in either mins, max or avgs. Exactly as Mantle did, when it first came out.

100% agreed.

These drivers give performance boost for pretty much every game. I don't have BF4, but in BF3 all the stuttering is now gone.

So far been playing alittle bf4 on both 8.1 and 7, 8.1 feel smoother in bf4 for me. Going to do some testing now

Edit : after some more testing it indeed seems windows 7 is superior in battlefield 4 o.o

Sry for not reading through all the posts but I was searching on Hyperthreading and arrived here rolleyes.gif

This article states HT OFF for BF4:

So, why should it be ON?

I have I7 4930K, AMD R9 290X and Windows 8.1....

Much appreciated thumb.gif
