Any Mantle topic, they bring in GSync/NVAPI, Any G-sync topic they bring in Mantle. Any win8 thread they tell u how awesome win7 is. ffs it is just a win8 update thread, why bring in startmenu prob/win7.
The only way to deduce the gains made from mantle is to compare it to other things. So, Mantle on Vs. Mantle off. Mantle on (amd) Vs. GK110 on DX11. Since i'm one of the only people who has mentioned NVAPI, I take offense to your comments, as I was not trying to derail the thread. I was only trying to gain a better understanding of the differences between the two. A few people were gracious enough to respond, with hard facts on the differences. Those posts were actually an overall benefit to the thread, as many many people are confused as to how/what NVAPI works/is. Me being one of them, until 3 hours ago.
So far this "mantle topic" has been 99% devoid of gysnc. One statement was made towards it. It is completely intelligible, thus doesn't count, & the other one is me saying "sync is a whole other ball of wax." So far this thread has been 90% on topic. 5entinel hasn't had to lock the thread, & I haven't noticed any deleted posts. That's pretty damned good for an AMD product news thread. You should be congratulating your fellow OCN member, not ranting & raving while breaching TOS with offensive abbreviations.
Opinions, butt holes, stuff...

If they can improve eyefinity I may just jump back to the red team because Im plan on rocking the 3570K for a long, long time
then again for games in a few years down the road i wonder if they'll be GPU-bound or 3570K bound for 3x1080p
As of right now, from what I understand @ least... Frame pacing is non-issue on Hawaii with xfire+eyefinity. The only issue with mantle & eyefinity is portrait support & xfire. Both will be resolved quickly. (hopefully)
