And now I'm getting unrelated replies about HSA, java, and kingpin's scores (which are world records btw, not representative of any real world performance for crying out loud, nor are they complicated issues like performance with mantle is. Scores are just scores and that's it, if they're validated they happened, they're on the same level as the original pre-release bulldozer frequency records. They happened, no need to question that since they were validated by 3rd parties. But even then they have absolutely nothing to do with something as complicated of an issue as performance with mantle).
Do not trust AMD, NVidia, Intel, or any company when it comes to their own products and how competitive they are. I cannot believe this is an unpopular opinion.
If u didn't notice.... the COE of several companies already took AMD's word for it...!!
I buy whatever I want, when I want.. & never waiver or have a fissure/duopoly of thinking. Unbiased as they come... & you my friend are getting downright paid, to be so vocally skeptical about Mantle. You are not even objective anymore, just outright naysayer...
