Mantle support grow
« on: November 25, 2013, 04:57:15 PM »
Looks like BF4 Mantle support (likely due for Xmass, possibly can give up to 20% more fps - speculation) is not alone. Other that Frostbite engines aim for Mantle support - and developer studio Rebellion make it's stance behind Mantle too (kinda interesting, because we did not seen yet what this Mantle low-level driver can do, bypassing DirectX with more direct HW approach).

First game with Mantle support will be the Sniper Elite 3 in 2014.

So to make a quick recap, Mantle will be supported:

* games:
          o Battlefield 4 (Q4 2013)
          o Command & Conquer: Generals 2 (canceled?)
          o Dragon Age: Inquisition (Q3 2014)
          o Mass Effect (2014)
          o Mirror's Edge 2
          o Need for Speed series
          o Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Q1 2014)
          o Thief (Q1 2014)
          o Sniper Elite 3 (2014)
          o Star Citizen (Q4 2014)
          o Star Wars: Battlefront (2015?)

* engines:
          o Asura
          o Frostbite 3
          o Nitrous

* studios:
          o Cloud Imperium Games
          o DICE
          o Eidos
          o Oxide Games
          o Rebellion

Looks good, with such level of support it won't take long, before someone write a nVidia Mantle driver for more FPS  :D

Oh I am so in Plants VS Zombies can now play at 20k FPS with Mantel on my 290 haha.

Maybe thats to benefit the low end gpus on the game :)

Happy to see more games on these lists hope it pushes AMD ahead a bit and give the APU's some horse power they really need
