NVIDIA were silent 6 months ago and have been since. In that time they've enabled Asynchronous compute, silently, in their driver. The thing is, however, what NVIDIA and Microsoft call "Asynchronous Compute" is not how AMD calls it or implemented it under Mantle.
For NVIDIA and Microsoft, Asynchronous compute is defined the same way as it is defined in computer science. It means that there is no defined order of execution between jobs in the same batch.
AMD take it a step further. For AMD, Asynchronous compute adds both concurrent and parallel execution of jobs. This is why AMD gains more performance. AMDs added hardware redundancy allows them to perform Asynchronous compute + graphics. Meaning that both Graphics and Compute jobs can be executed in parallel as well as concurrently.
So NVIDIA do have Asynchronous compute enabled in their driver, as Kollock stated, they just don't or can't take advantage of it. That's precisely what I had predicted almost 6 months ago.
