No Mantle Support for Thief Just Yet

Today marks the North American release of Thief, the second AAA game title touted to support Mantle, AMD's ambitious Direct3D alternative. We have also seen some heavy marketing for how TrueAudio will make the game more awesome. Unfortunately it isn't launching with out of the box support for either technology. Eidos has Mantle and TrueAudio support "scheduled for March".

Thief is part of AMD's Gaming Evolved ecosystem, which puts it in AMD's inner circle of developer support. The only other studio and game that boasts of the same, which is in the market, are DICE and Battlefield 4. Based on a heavily modified Unreal Engine 3, Thief will run DirectX 11 out of the box.

AMD Partners with Raptr to Launch Rival App to GeForce Experience

AMD partnered with PC gaming social network and clan-base service Raptr to launch its very own PC game settings optimization app that rivals NVIDIA's GeForce Experience. Named Gaming Evolved, the app takes a slightly different approach to finding the right settings for games, than GeForce Experience. While NVIDIA has dedicated teams of people running games through countless combinations of hardware to find the optimal settings for a given hardware configuration, Gaming Evolved relies on Raptr's 16-million strong community. Raptr clients relay anonymous game settings and hardware configuration data to Raptr. The best settings for given hardware configurations are pulled out of that data, through collaborative filtering. In addition to one-click optimization of game settings (a la GeForce Experience), the app gives you three of its own presets unique to your hardware - "best quality," "best performance," and "balanced." Raptr released the first public beta of the app, which can be downloaded from the link below.
