    Starswarm Demo:

    Pretty impressive gain for not fully supporting my card yet.

    this driver increased directx11 perf too:

    tomb raider ultimayte settings +3-4 fps
    street fighter x tekken : 59.9995 fps (59.8 something with last driver)
    battlefield 4 +2 fps (dx11 ultra + all setings to the max) - mantle + 18 fps

    nice driver so far

    Lel. I modded the driver so Mantle would work with my laptop. I can enable Mantle in BF4 and in Starswarm, but if I want to start them, they are crashing .exe has stopped working. Well, was a nice try.

    Anyone else with r9 290 cards in crossfire have it working? No DX11 game works in crossfire for me anymore, instant crash of PC or game.

    You wan't belived.
    I just turn ON the Mantle And...
    30fps all the time, only 60 when look at sky or wall.
    perfoverlay.drawgraph shows CPU at the 40ms, while GPU is at 20ms.
    As soon as I turn DX the fps go to 45-60fps depending on location, but graph looks more "stable" and CPU as GPu stays at 20-22ms. Game is more smooth on DirectX.
    Somethings is wrong, AMD in changelog inform that performance on 7000 will be signifant better and it will change in future updates, but in my scenerio its UNPlayable.

    I'm gonna check Mantle on StarSwarm benchmark, to see if its only in BF4 or compabillty Mantle and my graphics card.

    Clean install here...BF4 with mantle activated => 2-3 fps in both SP and MP, cpu/gpu @ 100% load and my system starts performing like a Nokia 3310. Guess I'll have to wait for the next driver.

    AMD recommends to uninstall old drivers first, they actually wrote
    "Current driver MUST be uninstalled before updating to AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta driver."
    With capitular MUST :D I guess I will uninstall this time first.

    This driver makes my screen have a reddish tinge. I found that the color temperature comes set to 6400K (and resets to that) but the default button sets it to 6500K. 6500K gives me the normal colors without the red tinge.

    Edit: Awww ... no mantle for me? :)

    I've just tested StarSwarm, heres my Results.

    DirectX
    == Results ================================================
    Test Duration: 360 Seconds
    Total Frames: 11402

    Average FPS: 31.67
    Average Unit Count: 4383
    Maximum Unit Count: 5556
    Average Batches/MS: 511.89
    Maximum Batches/MS: 1315.29
    Average Batch Count: 18509
    Maximum Batch Count: 123732

    Mantle
    == Results ================================================
    Test Duration: 360 Seconds
    Total Frames: 15944

    Average FPS: 44.29
    Average Unit Count: 4505
    Maximum Unit Count: 5616
    Average Batches/MS: 907.77
    Maximum Batches/MS: 2470.97
    Average Batch Count: 22150
    Maximum Batch Count: 153159


    So, from this I can say that, Mantle in Battlefield 4 isn't optimized for me.
    StarSwarm benchmark with Mantle running gives me ~40% improvments. Knowing that, and that next driver will fix 7000 series
    I'm Ok, waiting for Thief then :)
    Battlefield 4 will be running on DirectX. But I must say, that I'm little dissapointed in EA/DICE. Just Glad, that R7,R9, Kaveri users are happy :)
