Exactly, I would add that affordable gaming laptops with Kaveri APUs will be interesting to see too.
Ran lots of BF4 Multiplayer tests in Siege of Shanghai 64 players today D3D11 vs Mantle.
@ 1440p, ultra settings:
Mantle 7.3 % faster than DirectX11 on average. Mantle has lower minimum fps due to quite rare random high latency frames.
@ 1440p, low settings
Mantle 16.5 % faster than DirectX11 on average. Mantle has lower minimum fps due to quite rare random high latency frames.
3930K @ 4.2GHz
Asus Rampage IV Formula
32GB 2133MHz CL9 ram
AMD R9 290X @ stock "uber"
Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
Cat 14.1 Beta
Some stability problems ? were present. Crashing randomly with Mantle API. But not bad for first try.
Link to the driver? Or is it secret still?
Sorry, still confidential.
Besides, Press driver is FAR from standard driver installer. Let the guys at AMD fix it for a bit more.
Has AMD announced if it will add support for 6xxx cards? And will Mantle be linux compatible? (looking at you, SteamOS)
14.1 beta driver will be release monday
no your out of luck .....and who the hell still uses the 6xxx series lol
Really? It runs all the games I play just fine so I havent had a need to upgrade it. No need to get all high and mighty-elite on your 2nd post.
I think us amature pc builders that started computing on VIC 20s can handle it, lol! PM me the uploaded driver my PC and I will tell not a soul. X- ♡
Sorry chaps, the paid press get priority over their paying customers.
Dear God! Give us real results already!
Now to count my fat roll of Benjamins.
im stoked they have this mantle on the way...BUT have AMD actually worked on this 'black screen' issue that is screwing with a high pecentage of their card owners ?? i have a asus 290x 4gb and it is getting annoying. I cant find out anywhere if a fix is in this new driver. i hope so...if its 3 months between drivers thats a long wait to actually enjoy my new card without this annoying issue.
I don't know who gets paid but I sincerely doubt it is me because there is a nice negative number related to R9 290X in my bank account.
Is black-screen issue the one in which your screen blacks out, and audio appears to drag out? If so, no. My card black-screened on me once today (when playing with Mantle).
Black screen issue is caused by AMD not optimizing the GPU to timings of Elpida-made memory chips. There could be a BIOS update in the works. My 042 BIOS reduced black-screens greatly, but not eliminated the issue. You can find it in our BIOS DB.
I'm just trying to get over being virtually hugged.
Interesting... I have few Black Screenin AMD cards here. One of them is Engineering Sample R7 260X reference board. Elpidas I presume.
Mine black screened a few times during game....but of late it only does it when I log into Windows. It will let me click the user then when loading windows just black screens....I can only use safe mode...and today it's been very bad...12 times in a row. I spend a grand on this card 4 weeks ago and feel a bit ripped at the moment.
14.1 beta 1.6
No registration req.
Thanks Broken Pixle it works. All the low fps I would get in like sige of shanghai into the 30's gone, rarely below 70. gives some life to my Phenom II X6 CPU useage is high instead of 60-70 i hang around 80-85.
They lied to you, lol.
