Only played a bit of BF4 so far, but it seems to be a bit more sluggish than BF3, although still playable. Framerates seem to be around 50-60fps with pretty much everything turned on except Motion Blur.

Radeon 7970 3GB
Intel i860 2.8ghz
6GB(2gb is out, needing replacement)
Corsair 512GB Neutron SSD
Windows 7

I'm sure I could get a constant 70+ fps if I turned off everything, but that would be sacrilege.

Also, I do get repeated warnings from BF4/Battlelog to update my Catalyst drivers to 13.9+, I'll try that when I get home from work.

PS. Tanks are horribly nerfed(clip system), every single other thing in the game seems to have gotten a buff, it's mind boggling. Although it's too early to tell for sure, early on balance seems to be skewed away from tanks to airpower definitely, as well as RPG infantry.
