    r3 user here. i can get 33 frames outside with my gpu oc'd. it will go as high as 60 frequently when in the tunnels. It bounces down to 22-25 frames per second when going in large open spaces. Which makes me think that it will be completely unplayable on the larger levels like caspain. I read on the bf3 fourm some people who have insanely nice set ups get like 15 fps max in caspian. might just be a beta bug.

    I found using a 4:3 resolution works better.
    Also I noticed the framerates are better in different servers.
    I am using High settings on my R2.
    I have been messing around with motion blur and it seems to make it "smoother" but I have kept it on as it gives it somewhat of a more "realistic" effect.
    This is still BETA! There will defiantly be a major update before the release fixing the clipping issues and other optimization fixes which will help frame rates.

    I agree, if with a Beta we are getting playable frames with high settings and native resolutions (or close) expect to play the final game just fine...

    And more with driver updates in the future...

    R2 user with OC'ed CPU, and I can't get more than about 35fps on low.
    Any thoughts?

    Back to tracking down my optimus issue, blips for a moment when any game launches but obviously doesn't actually turn over, when I launch BF3 beta it will blip the activity icon, then BF3 beta states intel gpu not compatible.

    While list set correctly. More hours of reading optimus related posts.

    May I ask what Intel drivers you are all running?

    m11xR2 btw

    Have you OC'ed your GPU? It seems that such a demanding game (especially for graphics) will benefit from any time of OC you can give it. You might check out the volt mod to help boost your GPU overclocks even more.

    Very well, I'll look into OCing the GPU as well.
    Though how are some people getting the graphics on high/medium without significant lag!? Mind you, I've also got the new Nvidia drivers meant for BF3
