    From the article:
    Thief, the latest Mantle-based game release, shows a similar story; an advantage for AMD (using driver version 14.2) over the GTX 780 Ti with R331 and R334, but NVIDIA’s card taking the lead (albeit by a small percentage) with the upcoming driver.

    From the article, just like Mantle, you should see improvement on games that are CPU limited because of the D3d11 overhead.

    1 of the best test is Star Swarm.

    Can't comment more (nda).

    Wow, looks like we might see 15-20% boost in CPU heavy games and even others with some luck... impressive.

    Sounds good. I'm hoping this will improve Arma 3.

    Yeah, guys please make sure to do some benches on that one, before and after. I'd be curious to see the differences. Hoping there'll be noticeable gains. :)

    As always with this things (being shown a graph telling us of performance increases in drivers), I'll believe it when I actually see it on my PC giving me these "huge performance increases".

    Great for DX 11 games not so much for game that still use DX9 *stares and point at SWtor and its bad bad engine design*
