There was a slide at AMDs GPU14, showing that the embargo (NDA), will be lifted on the 15th October (next Tuesday), so we should get the reviews then.

Its over on video you know who.

It's been a while since a card was unlockable like that, 6950 -> 6970 ? Lets hope its possible though, that would be sweet

Still debating whether to just get another 7950 for crossfire?

I'll definitely keep an eye out for the 290 performance. It looks sweet and the pricing should be interesting. Can't wait for benches.

It will if Nvidia decide to use it, as it is open.

nvapi is mante but obviously not as efficient since its still kinda using dx11api in bf3/bf4, mantle has a special driver api so there's no dx11api overhead involved.

NVAPI is NVIDIA's core software development kit that allows direct access to NVIDIA GPUs and drivers on all windows platforms. NVAPI provides support for categories of operations that range beyond the scope of those found in familiar graphics APIs such as DirectX and OpenGL.

It would have to be a driver level API (which would prove all of AMD's claims of performance gains from Mantle wrong) for NVidia cards to support it....unless they were involved in the development of Mantle.

Same here.

Unless NVIDIA do something similar for their cards then Mantle could very well be the thing that persuades me to switch to AMD for a future graphics card. After all, AMD are heavily involved with the PS4 and Xbox One, since they provide their GPUs and CPUs, and if PC games start to support Mantle as standard and show real performance improvements then I'd be a fool not to. With the shift toward DirectX 11, there's less reason to stay with NVIDIA as custom AA flags, the big draw for me, don't work with that API.

The only issue I have with AMD is that my experience of their drivers has not been too favourable but maybe that will change as well because NVIDIA are certainly not perfect in that area at the moment either.
