    Haha :D

    Even thought about that a Company may 'leak' a software component by themself?

    This would allow them to refuse any support / any negative PR if something wents wrong...
    but they'll be able to see how it works / get feedback (basically its some kind of beta testing / debugging @ user side)

    C'mon Hilbert. pls leak the driver to Asder. AMD will never find out who leaked the driver. Like everytime.

    Don't you understand. Mantle gives a big performance boost if you have a midrange CPU and a High End GPU. So the "top of the line" argument is invalid.

    Yeah!! all the investment they are doing just to lower their cpu sales...

    Ok, then im gonna make my next setup with a r9 210XXX, 32Gb ram 4000Ghz and a Pentium mmx so I can really get all out of mantle!!:thumbup:

    the only thing that really pisses me off is the wait time, all the delays and fake announcements of release...

    Wait for a bit of Crossfire benchmark results :) Then we have some real numbers to comment on high end configurations!

    Mantle doesn't only benefit low end cpu rigs ffs, learn to read. Multi gpu setups get a massive boost, even with top end cpus.

    results to me dont seem that impressive yet....

    no-one seems to be talking about the "audio part" has this just been forgotten about..

    p.s but i guess if it does give a ten fps boost that's pretty good.

    Have some MP benchmarks for a more positive outlook :)

    And no one mentions the "audio part" (TrueAudio) because there is nothing to test it with yet - BF4 doesn't support it.

    Think about this too; Mantle would also help out high-end processors by freeing up how much processing power is left for other things. You could probably do some video encoding now and play BF4 :p

    Even if there were no improvements in framerate at all I would still prefer mantle over DirectX. (DirectX > = 11.1 Win8.1 only)
