I'm a Nvidia owner who is going to own Thief and BF4 both will use Mantle... hmm

I call bull#$% on 20-30 frames boost. Though who knows, at this point it might still be a sizable increase in performance. Still, you have to be skeptical with the little information that we have about it.

It won't affect the performance of your card. Mantle will just boost the performance of GCN AMD cards.

Though AMD has stated that Mantle isn't tied down to GCN, so maybe Nvidia will contribute to Mantle too


If this happens, as well as Intel maybe throwing in something to optimize to their chips, particularly with hyperthreading, then we will see HUGE gains.

I can't say I've played too much of the Thief games, but even from the little I've played. this is like the devs pissing all over the franchise and saying that they are doing it good.

while I agree with this in general, one change I am happy about is no supernatural stuff.

So will my APU laptop (in sig) benefit from mantle, or am I reading into this wrong?

Nope, only GCN-based chips of which the 7670m is not.

The main thing they seem to be talking about is reduced CPU overhead which will allow lower end CPUs to push high end cards much more effectively. I'll be interested to see how much it helps performance for machines that aren't CPU bottlenecked.

Mantle might be amazing. It might also be a whole bunch of hot air.
It's incredibly likely, though, that the biggest improvement Mantle will provide is CPU scaling.


The truth will probably be somewhere in-between, I predict a scenario where AMD cards will see a few fps more than a similar Nvidia card in certain games, but it won't be earth-shattering.


My thoughts exactly.

Mantle will also improve CPU utilization:

Just a random thought, why do so many people hate on AMD? Nvidia makes so much proprietary crap and AMD actually tries to push things forward like with mantle. Like stated above, they're willing to make Mantle open for Nvidia, and have said its not tied down to GCN.


If mantle turns out to be good as some people hope, I say they should trade physX and Mantle.

They can still duke it out via GPU chips but go lax software side.
