To the people who claim Mantle is "out" and fully ready:

Can I go get a hold of what I, myself, would need to make my game take advantage of Mantle?

Sorry but it is out and for the most part completely functional. There isn't quite enough data to make complete assertions but for some a complete success others maybe 90% with minor issues. Most have been with getting the driver to take.

Funny part in some posts is that they believe that AMD only took 2 years to do what MS is taking the better part of half a decade to do, when MS has many fold more money with which to work with. And as mentioned earlier, AMD Intel and NVIDIA were all asked to make this, AMD being the only one willing to undertake. Too funny some here are letting their bias make them selective forget the facts they were privy to in numerous Mantle discussions

If it's out and available, does it matter who I am?

Yes... That proves if you are genuinely interested or just talking for talking sake. rolleyes.gif

Seems like you're dodging the question by focusing on my credentials, personally.

SDK is not available till the end of the year, unless you are a dev buddy buddy with AMD.

MANTLE is in Beta. As far as I know that hasn't changed. Those claiming it is finished are wrong, as that would indicate it's not in Beta. Those claiming it's issue-less clearly haven't been to the Official BF4 Thread. Every patch and update has something new going wrong with Mantle API. Mind you, BF4 is quite buggy on itself. I don't think it really matters though either way, AMD isn't known for releasing 100% stable and finished software, but software that does continue to grow and evolve.

The SDK is due out for Developers in April.

Actually, even if you are developer you are not guaranteed to get the Mantle SDK come April...you can apply to get access to it, but access will only be given on approved circumstances. We don't know how picky AMD will be.

Right now, I believe the only people that should have seen it are at Dice and Eidos...though I would hope that AMD let Crytek and other game major graphics engine developers have access to the source code by now too.

All this hush, hush stuff is driving me nuts.

If you oversee a future AAA title AMD will infact give your programmers access to the Mantle SDK and may even deploy a few of their own to you.
As for consumer use there are 2 games and 1 bench which support Mantle already and more to come.

Saying it isn't out while it has been for months (though with some bugs) is just denying facts. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The above goes to all the haters that can't see cpus are holding us back, Cmon guys we all know that infact the future will be fusion

So what does all this mean for someone who's currently in the market for a new GPU?
My old 4870's are really holding me back from playing what I'd like to, and have been looking at a 270x in the coming months.

Now I don't know if I should wait.
