AMD explained how Mantle is different than other programming interfaces, detailed the benefits it brings to both game developers and gamers,
He is doing an excellent job explaining what to expect from mantle. He just seems a bit uncomfortable when speaking about DX12. It may be that he is being careful not to ruffle any feathers with a strong partner like M$, or it could be that he thinks DX12 is really going to hurt the chances of Mantle gaining a major foothold in the industry. May be both.
Mantle is only of use for AMD owners where as dx12 is for all pc users, its pretty clear which one developers will choose. Mantle has an uphill strugle and its already hit its biggest hurdle with nvidia refusing to support it.
Nvidia and Direct X12 for me.
Noted and filed under WGAF.
You cared the moment you saw the comment.
Same. Nvidia is cocky but they have the hardware and software to back it up.
Mantle will be good until DX12 get here and once it do arrive Mantle will be dead...
Mantle could be very useful on Non-Windows OS where DirectX12 will not exist.
Yes indeed. Very true
Dont forget that Mantel will be key for those on Windows 7. Windows 7 will not be getting DirectX 12 or DirectX 11.1 or 11.2.
Ha! Aint that the truth. DX12 will be MS attempt to push that's post windows 8. Like what they did with that pos vista and dx10. They made newer games no longer be able to run under dx9 and window XP to force us to upgrade to that terrible OS. Thankfully windows 7 came along. Not a fan of 8. Looks like crap. It is built for touch screen devices, not for a pc. No start menu? No thanks.
