Star Swarm is out, only the Mantle drivers are missing.
well..technically..we still DONT have Mantle yet....1 day left.....and hours.
Theres alot of information about mantle this morning in google news search for AMD Mantle. Looks like it will be released tomorrow or late today.
I read that initially Radeon 7970's or HD 7000 series is not supported in the Beta Drivers.
I've done the morning reading about it.
I'll buy the Battlefield 4 when crossfire mantle 7970's get supported.
yeah, it will be only avaible for AMD Radeon™ R9 290X, R9 290, R7 260X and “Kaveri” APU
that was a bogus blog post by EA.
it is supported, but not optimized.
AMD gave them a smack, and told them to update their blog.
Repost for everyone to see.
Maybe hold up is because they decided to include mantle for all devices and that includes a lot of additional testing.
No. All GCN GPU's are supported, it was rebunked.
it was rebunked? as in bunked again?
i assume you mean debunked...
sorry, had to do that
lol!! yup that's what i meant, my bads!
lol AMD just updated their beta drivers page, but no 14.1 posted yet.
I have a feeling its gonna hit in the next hour
Wouldn't it be hilarious if their next tweet reads, we found a problem in the 14.1s @ the last minute, so they won't be out for another couple of days or so
one HD 7970 already sold for 230 euros in ebay (its not GHz Versions) now 2 more Cards to go anyway i will order 2 x Gigabyte R9 290´s Tommarow and probably will get on saturday (day after tommarow),i will be ordering non bf4 Version since they are 20 euros cheaper then the bf4 versions in germany
AMDGaming FB (nearly 4 hours ago):
AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta will support ALL desktop GCN products, though we are working with EA to further optimize performance on 280X, 270X, HD 7000 and HD 8000. We have asked EA to update their blog to reflect this.
Some clarification came around here, but still some are confused
so you telling me that i'm wasting my time on waiting for Mantle? :bang:
No, 7 series are supported by Mantle.
well he could read the post above his to know that. but he didn't because, that's like, really hard to do, to read what's above, like one post above. interwebz....
I'm very excited if it will be a crackle- and blackscreenfree experience... Every other thing is a bonus for me.
you are Crossfire, you should see some nice uplift.
dont forget to bench DX first...
I'm running 4K now, but it should still give some nice impovements in heavy battle scenes I think, but performance is the last thing I complain.
BF4 is king of blackscreens here and I cann't play with v-sync since cat. 13.11 beta 9.4 due crackling sound and stuttery perf.
It will be exciting to se if they fixed the blackscreens.
