    Last night I tested BF4 singleplayer on my iMac (i7 & gtx780m). After I heard all the stories about how demanding BF4 is and how much the drivers suck I went for a testrun.

    I played on my Benq Gaming Monitor in 1080p after I installed the newest nVidia drivers with HIGH settings 1080p. I managed to get almost 60fps most of the time with some rare drops down to 45fps.

    I know singleplayer gameplay and 64 server is different, but still it's impressive to see a mobile chip running a demanding game like bf4 that well.

    Sweet I was waiting for some 780m BF4 results. Can't wait for multiplayer OC'ed results. :D

    My plan is to get 780m if it can stay around 60 FPS on high or medium-high when OC'ed. If not I'll get the new Mac Pro if it works in Crossfire mode with the stock config.

    Can you post your exact settings? Many people have differing interpretations of "high" and "ultra" — there are settings that, even at high, can cause a massive frame-drop (MSAA, HBAO, shadows, etc).

    Personally I'd also much (much) prefer to run the game at 1440p and dial down the AA/shadows a tad: upscaled content never looks as nice.

    PS: I highlighted the personally bit so the gank squad doesn't launch their missiles at me.

    I'll check tonight. Only played 1h multplayer so far. For playing fps I use a BenQ XL2420T 1080p. I only run Windows 7. Think with 8.1 you would gain fps.

    Tell me exactly what settings you want me to check and i'll do it.

    Does anyone know how this will run on a 750M? At reasonable settings?

    I'm using HIGH settings on single player in native res (2560 x 1440) and getting around mid 50s and 1080 was netting me mid 60s. Multi will be much more demanding so will be using 1080 HIGH settings, which will most likely net me 50's on average. I find much better frame rates vs. BF3. This is on 680MX and Samsung 840 pro SSD.

    All of them. AA, AO, textures, lighting, shadows, etc. "High" is so vague.

    I wonder whats the max settings it can run in 1440p @ 60 FPS in multiplayer. That's all I'm concerned with. I don't like upscaling.
