Should I be worried about AMDs Manlte?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have been using nvidia forever and now with manlte their claiming a 45% performance increase in battlefield 4 a game I enjoy playing. I really don't want to switch to AMD but if all the games I want to play wont run as they could on AMD cards then I'll have no choice. Will mantle be a threat to nvidia? Should I even be worried about what AMD is doing with mantle?

Don't worry about it, mantle runs on Nvidia cards too.

But honestly, I think mantle is glorified marketing gimmick, the only benchmarks I've seen of the performance increase is on AMD's APUs, I haven't seen any benches on discrete graphics, but I guess time will tell.. thumb.gif

I just don't want to buy my next nvidia card to find out that everyone is going with AMD and mantle. I've had amd once and I don't think I will ever switch.

Jad the same thought. All I'm expecting is for a gimmick from AMD. Their hype with the FX CPU's killed my whole support for the company. Don't think they will have much success here. (Why I just bought a 680)

I just came from AMD, had crossfired two 280x's and just recently switched to two 780 Lightnings. After all the trouble I had just getting crossfire to work properly, not to mention various driver issues, negative performance in lots of games using crossfire opposed to a single card...screw Mantle. Sounds great on paper and all but until AMD gets it's act right I could care less...

Couple that with the MASSIVELY inflated AMD gpu prices due to this whole coin mining craze...I'll pass. tongue.gif

^ Great resource to get the most out of your card(s)!

I went to nvidia after my 6990 died but I am planning to go back to AMD when the 290X lightning hits the market. Nvidia and their greenlight crap is pissing me off since I intend to do some real benching and getting voltage cockblocked isn't really fun while AMD doesn't have such limits.

And hey even if mantle only gives a 20% increase in FPS why the hell not. It's a brand new thing it will improve and yeah not every game will use it but frostbite games will and most of those games are games I want to buy.

In the end there is no real winner or loser.

Nvidia has physx which some games uses.
AMD has mantle/ tressfx that some games uses.

unless they decide to love eachoter and merge one side wil lhave something the other side doesn't.
