gtav was possible on 360 hardware because of optimization..for this game to run on pc you'll need much higher specs than 360 to even match the consoles graphics

now this exclusive optimization can be done on pc so non-high end video cards can produce the same style of graphics and performance, and go a bit further than that

high end cards will benefit from this in 4k resolution

amd mantle has been co developed by amd and ea/dice, optmizing the frostbite 3 engine drastically with this as well using the gcn hardware found in ps4, xbone, steam machine, and next gen amd cards

amd mantle is also going to replace dx12, and apparently ms is done with the dx api..dx 11.2 will be the last that ms will release
i think it's nice

It's sad that you just toss a bunch of buzzwords around and hope people take you seriously.

"Mantle makes dem super kewl graphics" does not constitute an explanation of what Mantle is.
Wait... what?

Mantle is a low-level GPU API.

* It allows more objects to be rendered on the display.
* It allows more fine tuning by the devs using it.
* It opens up all hardware capabilities.

The downside is that it's new and thus not supported on cards from other vendors (nVidia/Intel). Although this may change if they adopt it.

And somehow, everyone here took you seriously.

Not an explanation even if true. Even less since it's made-up.
