AMD Mantle will benefit Lower-End CPUs, not mainstream and high-end PCs.

    Well this is definitely good news for people with low to mid end PCs

    So a small percentage increase on mainstream desktop CPU's, OpenGL looks more promising.
    Laptops will have a nice benefit at least.
    Hopefully Microsoft will still push for less overhead after Mantle.

    LOL I knew it . Fail AMD , up to 40%.... NOT!! lol lol lol. That company is a joke. Oh no where is my 40% on my 290X.....Just trolling guy. BTW my brother owns a X290 on water.

    Its up to 40% on a 290, assuming your cpu is not high end. Its apparently 15% for those i7 4700s.

    Hell with mantle one could save money on a cpu and buy a more expensive video card.

    It might not be what many expected, as most Guru3D.com readers have high end GPU bound systems. But if you get 15% on a 290 with a i7 4700 series or say AMD FX processor, then what is there to complain about ?

    Mantle is free, and kind of extra performance whatever the digit is, is a free plus.

    Yeah, laptops with AMD CPUs will benefit. But gaming laptops won't benfit too much because they're mostly GPU limited, the Mobile Core i7 CPU's from Sandybridge up are really rather good, and they remove any CPU bottlenecks already in most games. GPUs are the main weak link with gaming, or even non-gaming laptops.

    I don't think Mantle is that much to get excited about, thought it was going to be better than this. Although, if future games really start to push the limits of CPU's then Mantle could start coming into it's own then!

    True, plus the real gains will be seen with engines implementing Mantle from the start and not being patched in afterwards.

    Except that 13% at 1080p is an average of four CPU's:
    The A10 would have brought that average up.
    On the i7 it's less than 3% on an i5 it'll probably only be around 4-5%

    Yeah and 15% is a nice number.

    Damn, I was wanting to see everyone max the bf4 res slider as well.
    so if you have an uber rig and can get the res slider to say 150%, wonder how much extra mantle will be able to give ..175%?
    is that even too enthusiastic?

    lol yeah I was hoping on that too, increasing the res slider. :D

    Well, at least we get something, 13-15% is good. In mantle games it will give AMD cards the upper hand lol. It gives game developers free reign to develop VERY CPU heavy games!! .. Which is super awesome. Opens up a whole new world tbh.

    It's not groundbreaking but it is a step up which is always good.

    'It' isn't even released yet, but sure, though I disagree about it being free cause there's an entry charge, way too much for me.

    15% sounds too good :3eyes:
    neither OGL and Dx were developed in just 2 years.
    Mantle needs some time to mature.

    AMD should have been clear about this from the start. but yes, it's free and still a welcome improvement.

    Sounds fine to me 15% will make it really nice!
