Seconded, and thanks for the in-depth analysis of the new drivers, Dubbed. +rep

Could the win8.1 low mins not be cause by the lack of ssd? The hdd having to 'load in' the assets when stuff explodes could attribute to the low fps?
I ran the same test as you and never got any lower than 58 fps.

I don't know - but I haven't seen this to be the case.
I had BF4 installed on my 2nd HDD on win7 - and never experienced things like that - thus coming to the quick conclusion that HDD vs SSD in terms of FPS doesn't make a difference.
I've yet to see anyone say otherwise too.

I could give it a try on my win7 system again.

Right I couldn't stand the "suspense" so had to test - please do not relate these tests to the ones in the OP.
They were done in exactly the same way - but I have a lot more running in the background (vegas editing program open) - browser playing music from my radio station etc.
However the TWO results below - were running in the same test environment.

Both are win7 64bit home edition - HT ON:

2014-04-10 01:11:47 - bf4
Frames: 13626 - Time: 117141ms - Avg: 116.321 - Min: 38 - Max: 202

2014-04-10 01:24:35 - bf4
Frames: 12921 - Time: 112571ms - Avg: 114.781 - Min: 40 - Max: 192


First result is on my SSD
I then removed the BF4 folder from my SSD and put it on my HDD.
Then started downloading BF4 - closed origin - migrated the BF4 folder into the HDD install location
Did a repair install to be safe and restarted origin.
PC was NOT restarted.

Launched BF4 on the HDD and did the same test. Bear in mind there might be deviation as I'm not a robot but human - however as you can see the results are extremely similar to each other.
Thus I can happily disprove that "theory" of SSD > HDD in terms of FPS.
Load times were significantly different (over 3mins difference).

Yes i never got below about mid 50 fps for minimums also. Could be a ssd vs hdd issue when using the new shader cache option.

I have win 7 and win 8 loaded on 2 seperate SSDs, both with BF4, it shouldnt be too hard for me to test them. Although i work for the next few days so it will be a little while before i can test.

Win7 FTW - nuff said.
B2B PR Tech - only 18k Per year - but it's local - meaning no need to spend £1400-1600 on travel each year to london smile.gif!
I made about that my first job also. Dont forget about college though. More money to buy high-end gear. thumb.gif

Check the post just above yours bro - happy to say SSD or HDD doesn't make a difference in FPS smile.gif

As for college - I'm past that haha tongue.gif
I also paid off all my loans I had (Had quite a bit of money saved up) - so yeah anything I earn is money in my pocket.
But I'll be giving back to my mum - as she's been doing so much for me over the years smile.gif

In other words I'm not earning money for me, but for my mum. I want her to enjoy her life and retirement

In here you'll see the averages of each data (min, max, avg) - put against each other.
You're going to be absolutely surprised of the results. Windows 7 comes out on top - by a HUGE margin.
The figures shown are the differences that Win8.1 has OVER win7.
Thus if it is positive - it's how win8.1 is POSITIVELY better than win7. If however it's negative, then it means win7 comes out on top.

The values at the bottom are displayed by percentages.


I thought and I could be wrong which is why I'm asking.. that when you previously ran these tests to confirm difference between HT on/off and Win8.1 vs. Win7, we found that HT on was better and moving to Win8.1 provided a benefit (albeit small).

The above however is implying that no matter the driver, Win8.1 is losing. Even the worst case scenario with Win7 (HT off) is better than anything shown for Win8.1 (mins).

Well win8.1 does "win" in two out of three categories, marginally - but then loses out heavily in the other.
It got me confused really - but those were the results-I have no idea what changed in the MINS that made it so drastic.
