The Mantle API and the sound hardware could be pretty darn interesting. Only negative is of course that it's proprietary.


So can we finally drop the "AMD is the good guys who make everything open for everyone, and nVidia is the evil megacorporation that wants to lock down and control everything" thing?


Looks like it. This has probably made both Nvidia, Microsoft and Sony pissed.

Perhaps it'll make Microsoft take Windows and DirectX seriously again though

Hopefully, it'll lead to low-level modules for OpenGL TBH. That would be quite epic, but I get the feeling it'll never happen.

I was hoping Valve had something like that in store for for Steam OS

EDIT: It seems like the Mantle API is open!

Great, hopefully that means developers can force nVidia into supporting it, and we can get another half a decade out of those old Core 2 Quads XD
