Unlike tech like PhysX, Shadowplay or GeForce Experience wich all worked flawlessly even since their behind-thedoors alphas, right?Mine because its real life and done by me who isn't exactly new to computers.
You will have to trust what im saying and time will tell when they fix these terrible drivers.
It took me 50 bsod for that single chance to view it.
The cpu frame time was thin and around 9ms the gpu was on 5 ms
screen res was on 2560x1600 full ultra @ 200 res scale.
I know what I saw ive no reason to lie about this because im not happy because I got these cards in preparation for mantle and the fact they don't work for me gets me mad.
I don't want to praise mantle because I feel ive been spat in the face but facts are facts.
Im only telling you what I have seen
Seriously, I don't know where some people are going with this, AMD said Mantle official specifications won't be launched until Q3 2014 at it's earliest, untill then, untill they actualy have it defined to begin with, what do people expect? Does it work in D3D11? It does, Mantle is just some gravy (that will probably take a lot of time to taste just right and not ruing the other meals).
And the ones with IT'S NOT OPEN blah blah blah's are the worst. It's like FORD having a prototype of their EcoBoost engines and every other car buyer out there complaining that they don't share their early-stage technology, thus it will suck for the end-consumer, which possibly would blow up their (other brand) cars, for the time being.
