Can I ask why Wizz still use catalyst 13.11 beta 9.4 for review ?
And can you add some RTS game like Shogun 2 or Rome II or Company of Heroes 2 or Civilization V please.

I'm moving to a new apartment right now, buying everything new (Amazon, where are my bed sheets?), and figuring out the best way to give you thermal camera recordings of graphics cards, with audio recordings.

Have you done any testing how much of a difference there is between the driver you'd like me to use and the driver I used?
Use plastic sheeting like the rest of us do! Are you moving cross country, or continent?


Will Mantle be a feature in future testing as well?

as soon as it's stable enough and it's a realistic assumption that people use it for everyday gaming in supported titles

When are they going to share Mantle?

With talk of improvements coming to DirectX and OpenGL at the upcoming GDC they need to pull their finger out.

Not sure if serious? It's still in beta. They don't even have an SDK yet.

Besides that, considering they are in on the talks for changes in DX and OpenGL with the other hardware venders and Microsoft to offer (more) direct hardware access, which is what Mantle does, it might well be underway.

Sure it's in beta, but it's also being used in a retail game already, soon to be two. My point is I don't see how beyond the initial batch annouced devs, that as more time goes by other devs will be less inclined to support it the longer it remains exlusive to one vendor, especially with these recent annoucements.

Vendor agnostic is the way to go after all.

Anyway AMD have said they will make their plans clearier at the GDC too:
