BF3 PC Client R7 is due on Fri Apr 27th

We will publish an update to the BF3 PC game client on the morning of Friday April 27th.

The game client is compatible with the currently-live clients and servers.
There will not be any corresponding updates of game servers or central servers.
There will not be any downtime for Battlelog.

Since the patch is only code changes, it will be fairly small. I don't have the exact size in MB at hand, but expect it to be less than 100MB in size.

Changelist
* Origin wrapper updated
* AlienFX support
* Bugfixes to Eyefinity detection

Will this patch address the micro stuttering / lag that people with lower end systems have been experiencing over the past few months?

Previous patches seem to have introduced this issue and It seems to get worse with each update, yet no official acknowledgement has been made of this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Not to sound ungrateful, but this patch isn't really fixing anything worthwhile for 99.999% of the already diminished playerbase...

But more frequent small fixes are more than welcome, so thanks.

As kalms stated this is a client patch not a server patch.

Useless for 99.99% of the community. Nice one DICE, why not fix some bugs?

Of course a game that's been out for so long gets fewer and fewer players, but it's still a very active game. Now, regarding frequent fixes, do note that it costs DICE money for every patch they release, no matter the size. DICE also wants to make it feel like lots of things are changing at once, which is why they normally release fewer and bigger patches.

I like how you take two development studios and let them represent an entire country. Well done. And why are you even commenting if you think Battlefield 3 is "half assed" and "broken"?

You guys need to be more thankful. This is a huge game with so much going on they can't possibly be expected to fix everything in a few patches. As each patch comes out it highlights a new problem that becomes the focus of the next patch and so on. Some patches help connectivity and bug fixes for hardware. Some patches fix the game mechanics, like the dart glitch. No single patch can bring perfection. To expect or demand perfection after a few small patches and a couple major patches is crazy. We know that there are problems with the game still but that does not give us the freedom to mercilessly attack the development team who is trying their best to make the game fair, stable, and enjoyable for everyone. Finding and changing bugged code post production is probably the hardest part for a development team.

On another note:
