Load issue
Fixed some of the issues relating to the long and/or permanent load times that some players have experienced on PC.

NOTE: This should reduce the lengthy load times for some of our players. We will continue to investigate further fixes for this issue. If you’ve been experiencing lengthy load times on PC, please apply this patch, try the Open Beta again, and let us know if this helps.

-Fixed various crashes when running Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7
-Fixed various graphical glitches on PC
-Updated the graphics options screen and introduced full-screen borderless mode on PC

How to apply the update
Start your Origin Client. The download of the Battlefield 4 Open Beta patch should start automatically. Additionally, if you try to connect to a multiplayer game and you haven’t updated yet, you will be automatically prompted to do so.

Still freezes at Loading for me while using 100% CPU. Tried on both WIn7 and Win8, no go.

EDIT: Unless there is another patch going live shortly that is different then the one I downloaded an hour ago...

Says there is no update, unless your referring to the one that came out 45 minutes ago, in which case it broke my punkbuster so I can no longer get into matches.

Great work guys. I can tell that it fixed some FPS problems on my gaming rig:

i7 2600K @ 4.5 GHz
AMD HD6970 in Crossfire
16 GB ram etc etc.

Getting like 85 FPS with drops to like 70 maybe 60 in Ultra :)

I'm going to test this on my gaming laptop aswell in a few hours or so. This has:

i7 4700HQ
Nvidia GTX 770M
8 GB ram

Edit: I can't notice any difference on my laptop tho :( Seems to fix only for AMD cards? It's weird. Still the same frames as before.

I'm getting like 50 and sometimes higher FPS on Medium and 38 and sometimes a bit higher on Ultra i think.
