BAttlefield 3 low FPS - Need advice
 
guys i need some feedback...I started playing the beta without the updated drivers and was only getting 20 to 30 fps. I built my new pc tobe able to max outthe games i play bf3 d3 and sc2 so i wasnt happy. Then i went searching and found the new drivers I installed them and had a great couple of games getting 50 to 60 outside the metro and 70 to high 80s. Here's where something weird happens... the next day i play again and notice that my frames are now 30 to 40 outside and 40 to max 50 in the metro!

I havent changed anything... I tried reloading the drivers and no luck. Any feedback guys?

My setup is:

2500k @ 4.5
gskill 8gb 1600 9-9-9-24
asus p8z68
asus 6950 2gb flashed to 6970 at 880/1350
resolution is 1080p
hdd is a 7300k hitachi deskstar

After checked the other threads i noticed that lots of ppl are running the game with 50fps consistently on lower end pcs.

Also i checked the following link provided in the specs thread for bf3:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...hl=en_US#gid=2

and it seems many ppl are getting over 60-70 fps with my setup.... is there anything I should do to optimize my setup?

thanks

For me a restart or a setting change and game restart fixes degrading fps, at one point this weekend I was dropping to sub 30 fps in the open area of metro.
For me it seams completely random, fps's are fine then all of a sudden they start dropping, it isnt server lag or some crap because clan mates fps's are perfectly fine.

Reinstall the beta drivers for BF3, restart (even though you aren't told to) then check a different server. Believe it or not, some servers can run worse then others frame wise. Especially if its hosted on poor equipment.

Same for me. I was running perfect one day, next day tons of framerate issues. I didn't change the settings. It's just buggy.
