I'm averaging about 30FPS in Battlefield 4. What gives?

Lots of users report that their performance issues were fixed by playing on Windows 8.

Every owner of a HD 7000 card should wait for BF4 to get support for Mantle in December however

I'm worried that Mantle just straight up wont come to the Vista OS. It's really been a very long time since theyve updated the drivers for Vista.

Even Windows 7 users get far superior performance it seems according to benchmarks I'm looking at

1440p, 2600k, GTX660 SLI, I can play at high and get 50-60, medium gives me a solid 60 ( which I like ). If I stay indoors I can get a solid 60 at ultra, but what's the fun in that? I think the problem is CPU, everyone says their's is near 100%. In my experience, most beta tests have debuggers running, which will make the CPU stick damn near 100% all game. I think EA also confirmed that the beta is several versions back, because they said they wanted to put out a stable older beta build, as opposed to something that is newer and hasn't been tested as much. Performance aside, I haven't personally encountered any bugs in the dozen or so games I've played. I wouldn't be too worried about the performance in beta.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Installed Windows 8 and the new 13.11 drivers and I get about double the performance vs Vista although I haven't done any hard benchmark though.

I Now I'm averaging ~45fps. I go from the 30s-60s. My whole system feels snappier too.

PCgameshardware compared CPU performance on Windows 7 and 8

Dice really needs to fix the performance on Windows 7(I assume Vista too)

Honestly, there is no point in worrying about performance in beta. The people I game with are all in the battlefield 4 beta, and from what I gather performance is all over the place still.

Not everyone is getting lousy performance , but a lot of people are. Interestingly, the person who has the system that is most similar to mine is able to run it much better than me.

I already bought a secondhand motherboard and i5 3570, but not because I do not think my current processor is not able to handle it. Even if it took 30 frames off the frames I got in BF3, it would still be quite playable.
