Hi there

This issue is not fixed. All these little "tweaks" are not solving the problem. I get the problem everytime I either switch to or off of Lancang Dam. As soon as the levelutoin hit in lancang tonight, my game start to stutter and then froze and I had to end task. It's directly tied to the older AMD cards. I have a 6850 and I see most people still having this problem all have 58xx or 68xx cards.


FYI - I have one of the older AMD cards you describe 

 

I played again last night and again the game appeared to work fine - even on the larger conquest levels again memory maxed at 27 percent and reclaimed the memory afterwards

 

I twice loaded and exited the game and my memory was reclaimed each time - this is the major issue the memory leak

 

I have previously installed the latest beta driver for the GFX but i didnt notice any improvement in memory performance until i switched my motherboard drivers over as well which are realtek.

 

If it doesnt work for you thats unfortunate and i understand how frustrating it must be.

 

But I felt i should share how i resolved the issue on my system. 

 

 

 Best of luck

I have the same issue here... I have two shots in my blog post (text in finnish, look at the pics).

I have Amd Radeon HD 6950 and I have the latest drivers, I also have 8 gigs of memory and game runs fine until memory leaks and takes all of it... 

 

Any news on the fix?

My memory spikes to 99% usage ONLY on Lacang Dam.  I can play for hours and hours on every other map but as soon as the server loads Lacang OR even after reboot I join a server on Lacang....99%.

I have noticed that I have this problem in a few maps. I noticed this yesterday and I cannot play Operation Locker - I quitted when next map was Operation Locker and switched servers - all fine. There are at least 1 or 2 more maps that does this but I do not remember names for those. 

 

Edit.

I played few hours yesterday without memory leak with that tactic.

It's certainly not just Lancang Dam.  Just happened to me on China Rising map.

Still getting this on my ATi 5850 & Catalyst 13.12

 

It's definitely, MINI/atikmdag.sys with the non paged pool leak:

I have not got the memory leak for now. I did these steps described here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Battlefield/comments/1q14u9/bf4_i_have_multiple_fixes_that_make_the_game_90/

 

I created user.cfg as described and I runned DXSETUP.exe and I also hade .NET 4.5 already installed.
