[IGN] EA has 15 Frostbite games in development (Mantle confirmed to be part of Frostbite) - Page 2

EA has 15 games in development using Dice's Frostbite engine. Back at E3, EA was advertising that basically all their upcoming games (outside of sports) would use Frostbite, like Need for Speed and Dragon Age.

I very much look forward to Battlefront though.

 

A great point. I will amend the title to "EA".

I think anything with Frostbite in it is attributed to DICE (for some reason unknown to me, perhaps they have a hand in these titles due to getting the most out of the engine) but I think the point you raise is a valid one.

Could be me reading between the lines though.

I would have to agree with this sentiment. If my understanding is correct (please correct me if I am wrong) many of the new frostbite games aren't actually being made by dice, even if they are using dice's engine. Thus, Dice may be referring to the games that they already have in their lineup which use frostbite, as well as perhaps the games they are working on themselves for the near future.


As far as my expectations for mantle go, I'd say optimistically 12-15% performance increase, and conservatively 3-5%. I can't imagine any of these games performing worse though, unless mantle is really quad-core dependent and doesn't play well with dual cores or something.

I have already made amendments to the thread title to reflect this. Really it's just IGN's titling that is slightly misleading, the overall statement regarding Mantle (which was more what this thread was made to highlight) is still relatively the same.

So if they made mantle for 1 game then mantle can be used for all other games on the same engine? Holy mother of flying cows then, that is amazing.

That is pretty much the concept of it, yes.

Even Dice said "our" 15+ games so it can be read into pretty easily. I guess the response was phrased that way since mantle's compatibility with the engine in specific was questioned.

Can Mantle perform as the same level gain as VirtuMVP? That's how I look at it.

It's really not, we all knew what he meant.

Well considering you read it AFTER he changed it, I would hope so. thumb.gif

Read up a little bit.
