AMD and DICE reveal Mantle, low-level graphics API for Radeon cards, offering 9X better performance

DSOGaming: "DICE's Johan Andersson revealed today that AMD and DICE are working on a low-level high-performance graphics API for Radeon cards, called Mantle. According to AMD, Mantle offers up to 9X more draw calls per second than other APIs by reducing CPU overhead." (Battlefield 4, PC, Tech)

Yes, this is an alternative to DX and OpenGL.

"Can it be used on consoles?"

Technically, it already is. What AMD have done is packaged up the light-weight and low level console GPU APIs and created a version for use in Windows.

Now PC developers can "code to the metal" of the GPU, which before was nearly impossible due to the layers of abstraction and inefficiencies that OpenGL and DX implicitly apply. All those fancy optimizations that console devs apply to their games to get the most out of console hardware will now be easily applicable to PCs with compatible hardware.

Theoretically, a laptop with the same amount of processing power as a PS4 will produce similar results if developers leverage Mantle. Battlefield 4 will be an interesting case. If they can prove that relatively low-powered PCs are capable of producing PS4-level graphics with a little bit of extra work, that's going to open a whole world of possibilities.

You have no idea what your on about, and you look ridiculous!

If anything this is a low level API. Which will more likely be used through higher level API (DirectX, OpenGl.. ) to use ONLY AMD graphics capabilities. It's not a general use API for other GPUs.

Progression? Developers have a foundation on what they continue to work on. If it's too much work ( aka money) they won't bother to swap.

OpenGL already provided many DX11 like features before MS hyped the crap out of them ( tessellation for example ) but no one flocked to OpenGL. So your point is rather moot.

AMD and Dice better show what it's worth before anyone would dare touch it.

HLSL is de shader language for DirectX. Like OpenGL has its own shader language (GLSL).

Since Gaming is most popular on windows most games just make use of DirectX. And because of this most shader code is written for DirectXs shader language. It's therefor easier for DirectX developers to bring their existing shaders over to mantle.
The mantle api probably converts the HLSL to their own shading facility( unless they just adapted HLSL ).

But it's by no means DirectX api compatible( cept for the shaders apparently).

It's either AMDs own HLSL compiler or a "intermediate language" wrapper. Not really surprised there. Is similar what Sony has in the PS4 SDK.

You know consoles have this thing called GPGPU compute in them right. This reduces CPU overhead on the PC by pushing the stuff onto the GPGPU of the PC cards right? Case solved. Its pretty simple really. More CPU compute moves onto the GPU with Mantle API. Likely NVIDIA has a similar plan for themselves to launch a low level API tieing into HLSL, and GLSL.

Its just AMD's version of GPGPU compute highly likely they will expand it past just DirectX/HLSL if they are supporting Valve hardware in the future on Linux. I expect a version compatible with GLSL to be in the works as well.

Both graphics developers want to tie as much as they can directly onto the hardware to squeeze out more power out of every system.

"It's either AMDs own HLSL compiler or a "intermediate language" wrapper. Not really surprised there. Is similar what Sony has in the PS4 SDK."

Yupper's 100%, its mainly becoming one big unified Gaming platform...this bodes very well for the industry.

Example with the PS4

Low-level access and the "wrapper" graphics API

In terms of rendering, there was some interesting news. Norden pointed out one of the principal weaknesses of DirectX 11 and OpenGL - they need to service a vast array of different hardware. The advantage of PlayStation 4 is that it's a fixed hardware platform, meaning that the specifics of the tech can be addressed directly. (It's worth pointing out at this point that the next-gen Xbox has hardware-specific extensions on top of the standard DX11 API.)

"We can significantly enhance performance by bypassing a lot of the artificial DirectX limitations and bottlenecks that are imposed so DirectX can work across a wide range of hardware," he revealed.

The development environment is designed to be flexible enough to get code up and running quickly, but offering the option for the more adventurous developers to get more out of the platform. To that end, PlayStation 4 has two rendering APIs.

"One of them is the absolute low-level API, you're talking directly to the hardware. It's used to draw the static RAM buffers and feed them directly to the GPU," Norden shared. "It's much, much lower level than you're used to with DirectX or OpenGL but it's not quite at the driver level. It's very similar if you've programmed PS3 or PS Vita, very similar to those graphics libraries."

But on top of that Sony is also providing what it terms a "wrapper API" that more closely resembles the standard PC rendering APIs.

Online gaming - with real names

Sony is set to include support for a player's "true name" into online gaming on PlayStation 4. Every player has dual identities - their real name and profile picture, and a second online ID with PSN avatar.

"It's kind of up to you how you want people to have access to your true name. You're going to have to explicitly enable that. Not everyone is going to see your true name by default," Norden said during his GDC talk.
True names are automatically enabled and visible to any friends you import from social networks where you have already shared this information - for example, Facebook. Real identities are also shared through a process described as

"true name search" which we assume to be akin to finding friends on Facebook. Outside of these two paths, these details are only shared when players explicitly agree to share them with one another.
Sony also confirmed that the friends list max limit on PlayStation 3 has been increased for the new console.

"The key is that it doesn't sacrifice the efficiency of the low-level API. It's actually a wrapper on top of the low-level API that does a lot of the mundane tasks that you don't want to have to do over and over."

The cool thing about the wrapper API is that while its task is to simplify development, Sony actually provides the source code for it so if there's anything that developers don't get on with, they can adapt it themselves to better suit their project.

Coincidently, I just said in (another) SteamOS thread, that OpenGL won't cut it.

This is exactly why. If SteamOS can leverage this (or it's own interface) this will be huge for Valve. We need a new API, and a new box which actually is built on that. Preferably this should also support NVidia (or any other card).

I'm curious how this will fit into Windows. It needs to bypass DirectX (and Windows drivers) to make this work. I can't believe it won't have "side effects". AMD seems it's in the right position to push this on their own. We'll see. But it must be an open API eventually.

And, yes, this is plenty of incentive for (engine) developers. Drawcall optimization is a pain with current APIs.
Kayant  +   550d ago
This needs to not be proprietary to just GCN to really take off but it sounds like that's not the case but am looking forward to seeing what devs can do with low level access on something like the 290X considering the amazing things we have seen on consoles near the end of the console cycle.

wishingW3L  +   550d ago
there is still the fact that consoles have standard hardware while devs would be wasting their time by coding to the metal on certain PC hardware when there are a gazillion of different set-ups out there. DirectX already provides some low level extensions but nobody gives a fk.

At the end of the day most games on PC are nothing but console ports, so we all are essentially playing the same game even if you have 20GB of super fast ram and a $1000 card. All you get for burning that kind of cash is slightly higher res and frame-rate.

Modern day GPUs are so powerful and they become cheap so fast that low level programming is useless, a wasted effort for an ever changing environment. This is only necessary for consoles because console hardware stays the same for years, so this is the only way to squeeze more out of them.

If this API were widely available for any GPU then it would sense. But an API that will require more effort only to benefit a few? Most devs will ignore it, except for those within AMD's paycheck or advertising deals of-course.

It's not USELESS, but it's less important than on consoles.

However, this will be awesome for lower specced chips such as laptop GPUs and lower-mid-range desktop GPUs. This will get games with better graphics running on cheaper PC hardware. Developers can continue to rely on the raw power of PC hardware if they choose to or see little value in the extra effort.
Ju  +   550d ago
Well...I'm just taking a wild guess here - but this will sure run on consoles, too.

Can you imagine you can simply recompile a console game on a PC with this and would get all the optimizations you have on the consoles for PCs as well?

This is massive. You can actually develop on both, console and PC with one (!) API. And what's wrong with efficient code even if you have a monster graphics card?

FlyingFoxy  +   550d ago
Hardly anyone buys a new graphics card every 6 months, graphics cards get on average 20-30% better per release of a series.

The only time worth upgrading is every 1-2 years or even 3.

Sorry but you're wrong.

Here's an example: http://www.hwcompare.com/11...

Scroll down just over half way down the page to Specifications, look at the year of manufacture between the 2 cards and then look at the performance difference.

thehitman  +   550d ago
@flying if you ever upgraded your card after 1-2 years either A you bought a shitty card or B wasting money because you dont get any significant gains on cards per value until on average 4 years. A 250-300 dollar card can last 3-4 years easily 350-400 card 5-6 years easily anything higher than that you probably shouldn't be buying anyway. Good gfx cards are quite expensive especially when you put it in retrospect that they cost more than consoles alone most of the time. I bought my gfx card 4 years ago and its still kicking strong being able to play games on ultra @ 30 fps at 1080p and better optimized games at 45-60 fps.

With that said I think the hardware in consoles or at least the ps4 is on par if not better than my PC currently but coming in a box at 1/3 the cost. Will know for sure when mine arrives on the 15th for comparisons but consoles are definitely a better investment. Glad to see more AMD optimization since I use amd cards as well, will benefit me on both platforms.
FlyingFoxy  +   550d ago

Nope, I actually still have my 5870 that cost me about £300 at launch in 2009.

I never buy cheapy graphics cards, I was simply stating that it's only worth upgrading every 1-2 years or 3+. I did NOT say that i do that. I myself usually give it at least 3 years.

if you read what i said again, in a way i am saying that upgrading every 6 months is a waste, which it is..

I haven't upgraded since then because it runs all the games that i play fine 60+fps, until a game comes out i want to play at 1080p & 60+fps i will not upgrade it.

I don't get it, the whole point of an API is to make the task of dev easier to work with multiple configuration while developing a game.

also if this new api is not on nvidia card I can garenteed it will become more of a hasle for dev cause they will have to do it for dx + opengl + mantle. Kinda like physx.

wish both green and red team would team up to ditch dx, that would make linux viable and we wont be forced to buy new windows OS to get newer feature (like they did with xp forcing gamer to switch)
RegorL  +   548d ago
Suppose you have 15 games in development, all using one game engine.

How much additional work would it be to port and optimize that game engine to one additional API Mantle when you are already doing PC-DX, XB360-DX, XBone-DX, PS3, PS4 compared to all work needed to create contents for the 15 games? Especially considering that you port to low level on four of the five architectures?

What if the port to low level APIs will make all your games crush* any competitors resembling game? More polygons, better physics, nicer effects, 4k resolution on reasonably priced cards...

* this would not be done if actual performance is at least two (read three) times on PC. It just wouldn't be worth it from a developers perspective. [Edit: but it might be from the card manufacturers... 10% might be more than enough for them. But once their competitor does the gain would vanish...]

This work will not cause DX11, XboxOne, or PS4 ports to suffer. But it might be the reason we are not seeing a Win U port - no idling game engine developer at the moment... EA/DICE judge this to give better return of investment than doing a Wii U port...
Nintendo you should have used a GCN GPU! Nvidia will get a low level port before Nintendo Wii U will get any love...
