Yeah Mantle will bury Nvidia into becoming the next 3dfx.

I don't think it will really make a difference.

The opportunity is there but it's really up to the developers and who pays them off the most

Well AMD's Hawaii based GPU looks to be the new boss on the streets and is highly rumored to mimick PS4 architecture. I would be shocked if it didn't perform better in 'ports'

Truth be told, I thought AMD might have for the first time in a long time was starting to have an advantage, then Nvidia announced Gsync.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105

The PC versions will still have to go through the DirectX/OpenGL layers.
Mantle could be a game changer, but Mantle is only confirmed for Frostbite 3 right now.


Future engines being tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of GCN should still carry over somewhat to the PC versions however.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
