So basically your results found that with the new drivers windows 7 yields better results?...So we should all be switching back to windows 7? i kind of hate windows 8 anyways except i dont mind it on the laptop.

Well I'm in two minds really.
Win8.1 felt "smoother" when I played yesterday for 1hr.
(I play with HT ON only).

So I really do like the win8.1 performance - but the min FPS really chocked me.
I'm thinking of redoing the win7 tests (as much as it kills me to do boring benches) - but I just cannot believe that win7 is 28% better in mins than win8.1 - especially seeing as when I last benched win8.1 vs win7 -win8.1 came out 5% on top:

This driver is same as others, it seems as thou it was just marketing.

Tried with formatted OS. tried with Safe mode, and still the same if not worse.

Maybe because i am on Windows 8.1 x64

I believe it is nothing but marketing and a placebo effect.

Yeah marketing is bad, but also in a sense good.
Think of it: If it wasn't for marketing, this thread, my benchmarks - would have never existed.

I very much hate false claims: *cough* Windows 8 bring 40% increases over win7 in BF4 *cough*.
So what did I do? Made benchmarks to see that.

This thread had the EXACT same intention. To see and test these "benchmark" scores from the manufacturer.
It's clear and safe to say, they made a positive impact.
I saw a huge gain in mins, just due to a "driver update" - that's something I wasn't expecting and was really happy to see come to life

My next goal is to test RAM speeds and the effects of those of BF4 benches. Again, because Corsair came out and said you gain up to 20% by buying faster RAM - despite the IMC on CPUs natively supporting 1600hz.
I'm very much a "myth buster" - I want to see things for myself, to prove for my own sake if they're like that or not.
However, by spending SO MUCH TIME on doing these things - I feel it isn't right for me to keep the information to myself, and thus release the results.

Check a few pages back - where I had to double check SSD vs HDD FPS differences.

Problem wit that thread:
Some of the games used are completely GPU bound.

I know a good benchmark I could do: Borderlands with PhysX bound to the CPU.
The problem with it - is that there's no consistency in that game. I can't repeat the same things over and over again.

Could you try Assetto Corsa or someone who has the game?

Okay fixed my issues with Assetto Corsa, by going to options ingame and changing the slider from 119 frame rate limit to 60fps.

I was super excited for mantle but after seeing the results I'm not impressed. But this is not a mantle thread so let's not get into that.

These drivers helped more than two games and that's great news for me! thumb.gif
