Battlefield 4 Extremely Slow Map Loading

So I am having problems with loading into maps with my Battlefield 4.

Usually it starts up quick as usual, but then I tend to get stuck first on the "black loading screen" for about 10-60 seconds.

And then I can start to load the map.
However loading the map can take from 1 minute to about 8 minutes before I can finally spawn ingame. Sometimes even more.....

It has not always been like this, when BF4 launched I could load maps as usual, but I have not changed anything since then. Only the latest patches have occurred since I launched Battlefield 4 for the first time.


Useful information:
- Running on a windows 7 Ultimate.
- Running Battlefield / Battlelog / Origin on a 2,5 SATA disk.
- I am sitting on 8 GB RAM.
- I have the latest drivers for my AMD graphic card.
- I have the latest punkbuster update.
- I am running firefox / origin in administrators mode.
- There is no firewall / antivirus blocking any connections for origin / battlefield or firefox (battlelog).
- I have 110/10 internet speed which should not make the internet connection it self to cause any problems.

If there are any more questions you might have about my specs as well as anything else. Do not hesitate to ask them, I will watch this thread like a hawk until I will have a fix to this problem. It makes me loose about 40% of my playtime each day which is taking it's toll in my nerves..

Same issue here and I have a beastly rig with a freshly purchased Samsung 840 Pro SSD. BF3 takes seconds to load, BF4 takes minutes.

Re: Battlefield 4 Extremely Slow Map Loading

yeah, I got the new update. Unfortunately, now none of the maps will load! The static loading screen fades to black, with the loading icon still playing, and then nothing happens. I have tried restarting the game, restarting the console and restarting my modem; nothing is wrong with my hardware! is this a problem that everyone is having?
I am playing on an XBOX 360 CONSOLE and having the same issue, so it CANNOT BE HARDWARE RELATED!!!

Re: Battlefield 4 Extremely Slow Map Loading

Got this problem today, after installing the latest origin update. It looks like the game become working too slow. 
Before that i've got up to 30 sec to get the game loaded, but now it seems it could take ages of waiting.

Not every changes are for better. =\
