AMD Mantle Performance Review - It Works!

AMD Mantle Performance Review - It Works!

The reviewers over at Computerbase.de have been testing the performance of Mantle and seeing whether or not it held up to the claims made by AMD. Battlefield 4 was recently patched with support for Mantle and AMD's 14.2 BETA driver was recently seeded to reviewers to see what Mantle was capable of.

Keeping in mind that these are beta drivers, the Mantle API is showing promise and is living up to AMD's claims. For their test, they chose a i7-4770k Overclocked to 4.5Ghz coupled with a R9 290X set to Uber performance.

With Mantle, they were seeing an average of 16% gains in performance with the API. This means that with time, and adoption, Mantle could be a serious contender for DirectX.

Once we get our own hands on the driver, we'll make sure that you gets get every bit of information there is about the API and it's performance.
