Have any of you found a solution to the CPU bottleneck? I'm experiencing it as well. Here are my settings/rig: 1080p 2500k @ 4.4ghz 7850 crossfire at 1180mhz BF3 set to ultra mode with 4xAA *edit* it turns out that by disabling crossfire I'm now pegged at 60fps even on large multiplayer maps. *edit #2* I updated to the 12.9 beta cats and it's fixed. One of my GPUs might have been clocked at 525mhz as well which I have also fixed. I'm now getting excellent performance.
