Hi All!

Just upgraded my Rig to win8 :confused::wtf::twitch: I will get it eventually lol

All my old software seems to work ok apart from Battlefield 3, when I die (often) the screen will go black for 1-2 seconds then return???

Any known issues elsewhere like this?

Driver releated maybe (GPU drivers - have you updated them?)

Another satisfied Windows 8 customer.
Yeah EA is more than likely working on a fix for this.
