    Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare - Does it really need it? I imagine that it'd run on a decent smartphone.

    Hmmm...

    Exactly. But of course if you say "40 games" it sounds better than "2 engines + some indies" support it. Any news about image quality and other graphics features in comparison to DX? 10% more performance is basically useless, but if it produces better results too... Now that would be something I would like.

    No point in Mantle, as you'll have long finished the games before they get their Mantle patches :p

    No point in Mantle, periode.
    It's just for weak sauce AMD hardware that gets a decent boost.

    Highend hardware will not gain a shred of "speed" as all the benchmarks have already showed us.

    Hopefully Mantle is for DirectX as Vista was for 7

    Both absolutely hopeless, but necessary for the next step of greatness

    Yep.. its like Crysis 2 with its crazy late high res textures and dx11 support. It was a fun once through game.. I tried playing through again with the updates.. didnt make it much more than an hour. Some say "better late than never".. but it really doesn't apply to video games. Like Duke Nukem Forever lol.

    Mantle is in ongoing development, and I still believe its introduction gave Microsoft the kick it needed for DirectX 12.

    The quality of Mantle should be the same as DirectX since it uses DirectX shaders, and its performance is probably a bit of an indication of how DirectX 12 will perform. If Mantle is still developed when DirectX 12 is released it will need to be updated to support the DirectX 12 shaders, assuming they update the shader model. It could still possibly have a place after DirectX 12 is released, even if it is in the form of a DirectX API extension.

    I believe that once fully implemented, Mantle will always outperform DX
