[Various] AMD Mantle release (BF4) - Page 22

post #211 of 1174
Thread Starter 
DICE is kinda fail. They bench a 7970 with Mantle then claim that non Hawaii chips are jot supported by the driver release today.

Thankfully, AMD issued a correction to reign in the Nvidia fanboys.

Very rarely I see my card being at 88% usage in bf4.

This will definitely help.

No problem. Sorry for overreaction.

AMD reacted on this only 2-3 hours ago. So since the morning there was rumour started by EA/Dice blog.

They stated about Cat 14.1 that "some graphics" will be supported, and in the same blog entry was test where they used HD 7970 for the testing. What is true is fact that HD7970 and similar graphics still need additional optimizations for BF4. Nothing more nothing less, so 14.1 Beta with Mantle will support ALL GCN based graphics.

This was strange from the very beginning. Why not to support hardware which has same HW capabilities and still make and release benchmarks with this HW?

Apart from BF4, is there anything else that's using mantle right now? no tech demos? no tests?

Is that going to end being being a real game? I was pretty interested in from what little I saw.

Starswarm demo. Still not on steam. They said 3:00pm. Which timezone? smile.gif

At all the driver does not seem to be available yet.
(and AMD made "download link guessing" much harder now)

Well....

I am hugely disappointed...

We knew it was going to help the lower end processor people, but it didn't do crap for those of us with higher end rigs. I won't feel the slightest bit bad about dumping these 7970s for 780 Tis and that Asus ROG SWIFT monitor.

I welcome the return of my, once again, overlord Nvidia!

Altar and Knucklehead were right this whole time......

Are you telling me the 8350 & 7970 aren't high end?

The thing about this....is...

Why buy AMD and have Intel like performance in only Mantle games, when I can buy Intel and have Intel like performance in ALL the games I play? Glad AMD removed the LOW END bottleneck on LOW END CPUs, but this is disappointing for those of us with higher end hardware.

Mantle is great for the budget gamer it seems, someone that wants to go low end due to cost, and get pretty solid performance on Mantle games.

Just being completely honest here, but, when I seen the "Up to 45%" I knew that was the absolute highest possible, so I shot low, and said the low end would be around 15%. Not in my wildest dreams did I expect to see numbers as low as 2%!

Well a lot of us told you guys don't believe the hype or at least don't believe that marketing.
However, conversely, initial results don't prove the product sucks. AMD always has rough deliveries.

Secondly, I do believe there is some misinformation where the HD 7xxx are supported, but not optimized. I can't make heads or tails out of what's real.

DirectX11.1 is not nearly as bad as the children on the forum will have you believe. The overhead is primarily seen on weak CPU driven machines. That just happens to be AMD.

Anybody believing that hardware would magically become more powerful with a CTM API doesn't honestly understand how DX11.1 is the pinnacle of DirectX and comparing an infant API to DX11.1 is the same as comparing 3DFX Glide to DirectX1 back in the day.
