    No performance gains, the point is that I can't use the Mantle renderer itself, because Mantle doesn't support Enduro. So Mantle can't speak to the GCN graphics card, only to the main renderer, the APU graphics which is VLiW4. Look:

    4. Notebooks based on AMD Enduro or PowerXpress™ technologies are currently not supported by Mantle in Battlefield 4. - See more at: http://www.maximumpc.com/amds_catal...g_mantle_update_and_more#sthash.S7Y5BEER.dpuf

    This would only be a problem with muxless laptops though right? My limited understanding is that Enduro and/or PowerXpress apply to dual graphics laptops in-general, both dual-GPUs with hardware mux, and dual-GPUs without a hardware mux.

    Hardware-mux laptops can change the primary GPU with relative ease.

    That's correct, muxless laptops won't support Mantle now (but later) Which is strange, because it's their latest switchable graphics technology, muxed is outdated. Hopefully Starswarm will support Enduro now...

    I just quoted from the site. Don't know more than what it says behind that link.
    There are some interesting benchmark results as well.

    If it is, they know how to stop it (just provide the driver) :p

    Although their download server will then get hit pretty heavily.

    not really, the demo could be out before the driver is out.

    because of last minute bug, the driver might be late, and AMD might have to prepare for a flood of F5 and then the download flood.
