specs:
7970 ghz 1125/1575
3570k 4.0

from very poorly optimized to runs great here is my list (1 being "runs like sh*t", 10 being runs 80-90 fps)

1. Siege of Shanghai (especially after the building falls)
2. Hanai Resort
3. Lancang Damn
4. Parcel Storm
5. Dawnbreaker
6. Zavod
7. Flood Zone
8. Golmund Railway
9. Operation Locker
10. Rogue transmission

I dont get why this is. I averaged 90 fps on Rogue Transmission with no drops on Ultra and i get into a Siege of Shanghai match and my fps hovers at 40 for the majority of the time.

Hanai Resort is the same, it runs horrible i have 80 fps looking in one direction and 40 in another

i dont really see a big difference in a map being that more buildings = less fps but Hanai Resort has moderately tame buildings compared to the giant satellite dish in the middle of Rogue transmission yet Hanai Resort runs terrible and Rogue runs great..

anyways i really hate how this game is optimized and my only hope is for mantle

Note: this is with any graphical setting i used, i tried dropping to medium and STILL gets 40 fps in smoke areas of Shanghai

same for me running - 290x - 3770k 4.5ghz - 8gb

its strange because even if you are looking at a wall but in a certain direction where the fps drops, it still happends. how is that possible if the only thing the hardware is drawing is a wall.

Shanghai is terrible.

glad its not my hardware and it is definatly the game.

Yeah, this list is spot-on. some maps run flawlessly always above 60 fps, others like seige of shanghai have ridiculous drops where the gpu usage goes way down and fps drops to like 40. Its always 100% reproducible looking at certain parts of the map, even in an empty server. It also happens when I lower settings, all that does is raise my max and avg fps, the same drops happen.

I can play BF3 on all ultra settings with no drops below 60 fps easily.

Yup never seen my cpu or gpu go above 80% usage... Yet I still get fps drops

This problem is even worse on the China Rising maps.

i know you dont have CR but the caves in Guillin peaks is by far the worst. Unless you have a super rig,entering or just even looking at the caves makes the fps plummet down to 20 fps where you can play smooth all other maps all on ultra.

For me, I only get horrible FPS on Zavod compared to the other maps. But then again it might be due to my settings. I'm all on low(besides texture quality and texture filtering and mesh quality they are at ultra) at 1080p. And I get between 60-75 FPS on each map besides Zavod, which gets me around 55-65 FPS.

For me, Hainan Resort is the absolute worst for stuttering.

Total agree with the list OP. Locker & Rogue run good enough, the rest are shocking.

I'd like to add that all China Rising maps run perfectly?

China rising runs not bad confirmed. altai range has fps drop looking at radar dome sometimes. Silk has best performance.

cave in peaks has fps drop.

all them maps are fine apart from seige of shanghia

gtx660
fx6300
2x4gb vengeance ram
700 watt dual rail psu
ballista mk-1 mouse

but if you optimised as in how it looks then all the greenery maps are bad and siege tower falls into ocean it rubbish no big wave forms.

Siege is by far the worst. Paracel Storm once the storm hits gets pretty choppy. Operation Locker is the smoothest for me.

You guys do realise that whilst much of this is an "Issue" some of it is just an annoying but unavoidable part of having such an intensive demanding game right?

The caves in giulin peaks - I dread to think how much power it takes to render all the lighting effects and shadows.

So yes it's bad optimization but it's also just the nature of such a demanding but visually stunning game.

The game is not even out of Alpha state and u want optimization?We are talking about DICE here,u know?They need another year to optimize the game after is released..at least.

The graphics really don't look *that* much better than BF3's (mainly just has much improved water effects, and better lighting/colors) I can run any BF3 map, even the more intensive karkand maps without ridiculous fps drops like this.

Battlefield 3 without the blue tint and the new water effects would look pretty much the same lol.

These maps are un-optimized, pure and simple. A lot of people that have quite powerful hardware are having these issues. Even putting my settings on medium doesn't stop the drops on shanghai or guilin, its absurd.

Hopefully the upcoming mantle support can help with some of these bottlenecks though, I'll have to wait and see.
