More accurately, the results are what they are for what was tested.

Tri-CF 290s for 4K are winners.

Why would you buy the 3970X over a 4930K?

They said it can work for other manufacturers in the future, but they never said it will. I guarantee you it will be at least 2 GPU generations before Nvidia works with Mantle.

Really? You have insider information showing this? If not, it's all speculation at best. That's why all I'm saying is that it would appear Nvidia will also have access to it as well as Intel.

As another point of contention I love how people that white knight for AMD say how they're all about being open and give Nvidia crap for keeping PhysX et cetera, if you're right or if they don't offer it at all they're no better than Nvidia in that respect.

EDIT: the second point was NOT directed at you at all Phelan, but rather as a general statement.

Love amd but tri or quad these you might as well get a generator and run them on bio fuel , cos my electric provider would probably call the police and say i may have a cannabis farm going biggrin.gif

There are 2 kinds of people I really admire in this world. Ones that say they are going to do something and do it! And ones that do something, and then say they have done it!

So you are saying that while AMD (you know the people that more or less developed that thing) clearly states it will only work with GCN cards and not older radeons, it somehow won't have issues to run on geforces (Intel HD is a joke as is)?

Oh wait, including those would have made Nvidia win....

They still included stuff like GRID or BF4 where SLI clearly wasn't working properly. However when it came to games where CFX didn't work properly or wasn't good they apparently just conveniently left them out.

Seems legit.

Gotta love the conspiracy theories when AMD win one. It's okay when reviewers don't flick a switch and put the 290x in uber mode tho isn't it, those reviews still count lol.

We don't play this game as this counts and that counts. We're trying to get objective information. Stop playing the taking sides game, no one wins when bad information is released.

They also said that it would be compatible with other platforms and architectures:


Take it up with AMD, not me.

Why isn't this objective, cos nvidia comes off looking worse?
