I have been.. I find it makes a difference with my underpowered CPU. Haven't really checked framerate yet, but it has to be higher with the way the game feels now.

It would be neat to see some results vs DirectX if you get some time to do so.

Just did a little test on a 64 player Domination map. DX11 I tested with Fraps and saw an average of 85, but the FPS spiked to 150 when I died, throwing off that amount. Low was 46. Fraps wouldn't work with Mantle so I used perfoverlay.showfps and watched the numbers. Almost always between 95-105FPS with a couple dips into the 80's. 1080P Ultra with 2xAA and 8xAF. I'd love to do a better comparison when I get time.

Not to shabby for the first mantle driver. Thanks for the info.

All right who's got some Domination tips for me? :) I haven't even tried it as it stands right now. I do know about the bomb and how to play it in general, I think...

Not me haha. I've only played it a couple times.

More precise Mantle vs DX11:

Guilin Peaks 55 Players TDM
1080P Ultra 2xAA 8xAF
DX11 min 38 max 93 avg 55
Mantle min 11 max 137 avg 66

Mantle feels a lot smoother to me... only going to get better from here I hope.

Right-e-oh. Conquest Domination, much like the not so popular Close Quarters maps. Obliteration is a good time, much like a blending of CTF and Rush.

So I just realized I probably unlocked the As Val on the 1st day I tried. I got the Co-Pilot Medal, but it didn't show a gun unlock. I just played a few rounds repairing LB's like crazy and got the UMP-9 unlocked, so that wasn't a bad thing. But looked into the Assignment more and that must be the As Val one, so I guess I have it after all, oh well.

They have brought the wrath of the as val back......................


I hated that gun so much in BF3. Pretty sure I was killed by it 10x more than any gun in the damn game.
I just skimmed over this yesterday not thinking much about it until I was
playing Silk Road last night and kept dying from it. Kills you quick too.

I have a question, has anyone got an invite to a server and have the game
disappear and go straight to battlelog ? Game was still going, but it
automatically minimized it. Wouldn't have been so bad except I was in
the heat of battle trying to save G on Silk Road and ended up we lost the
base for awhile because of it. We won the round, but that was a bit of an
annoyance. I had no idea what was happening. I get a couple beeps and
the game disappears. I hear beeps and I think crash :)
Took me a couple minutes to figure out WTF !

When using Mantle, my mouse cursor become offset by about one inch to the right from where it is actually clicking in every menu and map. Pretty annoying!
I get 10 bonus fps average using Mantle on 1440p everything maxed out but im back to DX11. Crashing is back in force since the new patch...

I'm wondering if anyone know's if there is a way to make the Mobility driver work on the Toshiba I have in my signature or if I have to wait until Toshiba releases it. I loaded the AMD Mobility driver and it black screens, but still has audio.

Update: I think I may have found what I did wrong. I will check today when I get home.

There's an occasional (every 5 min. or so) lag spike that happens just once that needs fixing.. Aside from that, it is much smoother overall.

Unlocked and tried the As Val.
Very nice weapon, did 33-10 the first time (so, no attachments) in Op Locker (k/d that is very good for me)
However, it bother me a bit that I cannot use it with the assault class and that the range is very very limited. The FAMAS is maybe a bit better due to this, although the reload is significantly slower. Don't know...

So it's my fault that this game still has extremely obvious bugs this far past release?

Not true, a page or so back people were talking about the other modes they like. Domination was the big hit. Team Death Match is the only mode with the audio bug is what Alex was getting at. I may have missed the sarcasm :laugh:
