I recently purchased the brand new MacBook Pro w/Retina display that was unveiled at the October press event. I love the computer. It runs great, is super fast and sleek, and the games look great....all except 1, Battlefield 4. I have windows 7 64bit bootcamped on my macbook pro and I downloaded Battlefield 4 from Origin thinking that I would be able to run the game no problem. The specs on this laptop are far above the recommended settings for the game. However, when I try to run the game, I get around 5 frames per second no matter what. I put the resolution to the smallest it would go and put all of the graphical settings on low or off and still, I get around 5-10 FPS. It is unplayable.
I looked online to see if others were experiencing the same issues as me and low and behold they are. I have come to the conclusion that it is the graphics drivers that are the problem, not the hardware itself. I looked and I am currently running on driver 321.17 or something like that. I know that they just released 340 or whatever specifically for BF4. I tried to download the latest driver from nvidia's website but when it was running the installer, it says that my current hardware could not be found or something to that effect. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to download the latest nvidia drivers on a bootcamped macbook pro or if I have to wait for apple to release them. Does anyone know how often apple releases driver updates for their video cards? Or am I just shit out of luck on running this game and I wasted $60?
