As time goes on more and more will jump on it.
I would love crytek to start using mantle.
Nope, learned something new. I don't follow Activision at all.

My thought is that if Mantle becomes the focus with the expectation of Ports to PC being the standard for most games, how will Nvidia deal with Mantle?
If Publishers push developers to support DX, Mantle, and Nvapi, are we going to pay for it? $80 games?
I don't want to see what is essentially DIRT 2 with AMD cards having insane performance because the game is designed for that architecture, and Nvidia cards unable to keep up.
Both products need to be supported and with added development time to do that would only lead to higher priced games, maybe even hardware.
