AMD Catalyst drivers will Mantle with support from




AMD has released a beta version of Catalyst 14.1 released which support is included for its Mantle-api. For the first time The alternative to Direct3D and OpenGL should provide better performance in 3D games.

AMD Mantle Mantle is available for AMD’s GPU, on the basis of the Graphics Core Next architecture. In supported games Mantle replaces the less efficient DirectX or OpenGL. Mantle creates according to AMD for less overhead on the CPU and is thus less likely to form a bottleneck for the GPU.

Nevertheless, there are few games that utilize Mantle, though EA last week Mantle patch for Battlefield 4 released . The benchmark Star Swarm is adapted for AMD’s new api.

The speed gain that makes AMD Mantle as possible, appear to be. Achieved in practice So are benchmarks of Legitreviews with a Sapphire Radeon 260X R7 seen in Battefield 4 and Star Swarm. significantly better performance Mantle once more games will support it becomes clearer what average speed gain can be expected.
