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.
Awesome man! That is good news.

I want to see minimum framerates. Especially some of the maps that have bad drops into the 30's fps(paracel storm at B, Hainan Resort at C are the biggest problem areas) and that is regardless of quality/resolution settings.
Mantle helps the CPU behavior in the game engine in every way.

I did not observer much change in minimum fps if you exclude the odd glitched frames from mantle.

It plays like a new game. There is an ocasional pause/stutter. Once the kinks are worked out it will be amazing (which it already is) I feel you suka, i bought an R9 290 on release day to replace my 6950 because it could barely handle it. I would have needed a new CPU but I knew mantle was coming out so I held off, glad I did!

This linked article shows why the driver has been delayed...
=> http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_mantle_preview,1.html
Well, considering the game patch was released one day prior and the drivers were going to be released the same time but were delayed due to an install bug, I don't know if we can know who to point the finger at. If the game patch came out the end of Dec. and the drivers weren't released for a month, then it would be pretty obvious. The game patch was delayed though as well. So, who knows why?

Every driver gives me 20% boost, even if it doesn't support my card or no boosts were listed for it. You know, it's like red brake calipers on cars. They give you instant 15 HP no matter what. :D Installing the drivers on my system right now...

wasn't it only 4 chips at launch?

i did just read that on the beta page.

Strange, Comodo jumped because the package was not recognized. Checked the file and is actually not signed by AMD. That's a bit weird. But since it's from their page, fine...

Am getting my 1090t soon but am not upgrading my 5870. I hope multi-threaded games will keep coming to ensure longevity of the 1090t. For now no Mantle for me

Guru3d did a little review of Mantle (link). Several different setups show very large gains to be had when BF4 is CPU limited. Example would be a ~56% increase when using a10 7850k with 290x with Medium settings at either 720p or 1080p resolutions. Yes, it's not normal settings you would use with that setup, but he used it to show what's possible.

Like I said earlier, it would be interesting to see this done with an old Athlon X2 and even something like a 7870.

I really wish Arma 3 adopt Mantle as it is the most cpu limited game I've played.
try to play total war games i had an i3 with 7950 and i was stuck with 20fps upgraded to i5 now i'm getting 30fps so a mantle will be nice
