  1. Oh man,, Mantle comes in, and I switch to Nvidia couple of days before it! 😉
    Would be interesting to see how much of performance my mate gets with his r9 280x!

    • My old Nvidia Phantom 570 graphics card got damaged so that I had to buy a new one weeks ago too. With Mantle in my mind, I asked my self as well if I should go for AMD with Mantle or Nvidia with DirectX only…. I had a low budget so that I have choosed an 270x after researching as I thought this card would be at least equal to my old 570 which I liked pretty much. I realized that the 270x is even faster in BF4 anyhow and now comes Mantle with further impact…

      I take a first look an hour ago and it looks like if Mantle shows benefits on my system too. But just looked into it for a few minutes. I will test Mantle the next hours as my friends will come online soon. I am interest to find out other opinions as well. Let´s see what the overall opinion is after a few days. 🙂

      I think it is not much of a problem if you have bought a decent Nvidia card. Always loved Nvidia and they make just awesome architectures. About AMD… What I find more interesting on Mantle is the fact that this API could transform mid-range cards like the 270x into decent gaming cards and that is my first impression at the moment. That would mean that these cards would have a very very nice price-performance ratio.

      Daniel have some fun in BF4 with your new Nvidia card and thanks for stoping by again.
