    What in the hell. Looked at the pictures, after what people were saying with the fog, and it looks like they just reduced the draw distance and covered it with fog it to gain performance...............

    Or it looks like the draw distance is the same, and heaven forbid the brightness is turned up!!!!

    Actually the FOV in the last images shows the Mantle demo running more area, and thus calculating more.


    Also don't double post, no matter how butthurt.

    There's nothing to be butt hurt about.....Game runs fine for me. 80fps+ all the time.

    You just proved my point that your "guesstimate" of framerates being unequal is bogus. There's no way you had the same setup running the same thing as they did. Your results will definitely be different. Those questions are not meant for you to answer. It was to help you realize how dumb your statement was.

    You're right, I didn't have the same setup. I had a WEAKER setup. Said that plenty of times. On the same settings in the same game I never go as low as their min FPS numbers and I average a good bit more than they do. Do ya see the problem or are you too dense?

    My statements:

    -I'm curious to know why the FX6300 has a higher fps than the FX8350 in your picture there. This is contrary to logic, all other tests i've seen, to all the people whining that their FX six cores are struggling (From battlelog forums) and my own experience. Unless the combination of a FX8320 (4.6) + GTX760 is faster than a FX8350 (stock) + 7970Ghz or GTX770.

    -That weird situation where the i7 and 8350 are performing worse that slower cpu's means something with their test system is not optimized.

    -To give reference, my setup (8350 @4.6 + GTX760 @ 1267MHz) gets an average of 72fps with a minimum of around 58-60fps. 1080p Ultra settings 4xmsaa high post, etc.

    You're right. Those are some stupid statements. /sarcasm

    Great job not adding anything to any discussion.

    P.S. I'm done with you. Edited for consistency.

    Random thought to you and the guy who you replied to... Have you guys thought that they might be using 200% scaling in the settings menu? I have no clue what that does exactly, but I do know it eats from your performance. That could explain why they're getting such low frames in all of their tests.

    Didn't see any mention of that. They say that it was done using the same settings in the same location as their beta benchmark. but I couldn't find it to see the exact settings.

    I've seen many instances where the FX6300 would beat the FX8350 running at the same clock. This may happen due to the fact that the FX6300 has more cache to work with per core therefore increasing IPC. That is situation dependent.

    I can't view anything labeled gaming at work right now. When I skimmed through the graphs yesterday on the battlelog, it doesn't look like they ran the same exact timed scenario for all systems. They only ran the same scenario for each system and ran it with/without mantle. It was also mentioned that they maxed the load on the game, something you may or may not do when you did your run. I could be wrong here.

    PS Someone who gets emotional over forum posts like you will never be done. Keep calling names and get upset. Like I care kid lol.

    You've called me dumb and a kid so you're ahead on the name calling.

    I am still waiting for you to tell me which statement was dumb.

    P.S. If you think I was talking about the mantle benchmarks on the first page you weren't following along. It was these: Post #35

    I believe all this mantle stuff was all thanks to the AMD commitment to bring APU to consoles (Xbox One / PS4)
