Windows 7 vs Windows 8.x for BF4 FPS

Hey guys, the initial question was

What is better for BF4 in terms of FPS, Win7 vs Win8.x?
Not talking about stability or what it'S like to use it on a daily basis, just FPS

Let's keep this discussion focus on FPS/performance gains and leave usability etc.. aside.
If possible it would be great if you could back up your opinion with links or explanations.

An extensive test is presented here

And also here, sorry it's not in English but the numbers are clear

As a main hater on this forum, I say no, it's not worth it.
I have been playing Battlefield since 1942 (the original PC game, not the year).

I guess a sidequestion would be DirectX11.2 which is only available on Win8.1
Does BF4 even use any of the features in DX11.2?

If I wasn't so lazy to install W8 I'd test that, because it's very interesting topic.

edit: Fuckit, you need to register to download the trial ISO from Microsoft. My ass.

Also if Windows 8 *does* improve FPS, does that only apply to DX11 cards?

No, they're technically the same.

But who knows what kind of "better" Win 8.1 does give.

Hard to really notice unless it's an artificial benchmark.
You do get the benefit of Shadowplay unlimited space. But that's another thing.


Also, Windows 8.1 is PERFECT for BF4 the same way Win 7 is. Please kill the naysayers.

Yeah, but Windows 8 sucks from a not gameplay standpoint.
