    Here are my crossfire results using Mantle in the game Thief. I have to say i think AMD's DirectX cpu overhead performance needs some work at 1080P. Nvidia offer better DX cpu overhead performance at this resolution in this game. However Mantle blows both vendors DX11 performance out of the water completely, which is great.

    System Specs

    2700k@5.3ghz
    290P Crossfire @1250/1625
    16GB DDR3 2133Mhz
    14.6 Beta
    Win8.1 64 Bit


    1080P Mantle

    So CrossFire finally works for Thief now?

    Yes. Support was made possible via 14.6 drivers and Thief was patched a day later. Crossfire works and it provides a big fps boost for crossfire.

    Using 14.4 WHQL driver with ACP/ACP64 profiles from 14.6 drivers and works great here.Double FPS with crossfire enabled.

    Why are you not using 14.6 mate?

    No reason,just messing around to see if the new profiles worked in other games.
