AMD Dumps Mantle

Discussion created by kingfish on Mar 23, 2015

AMD announced their revolutionary Mantle API at GPU ’14 in September of 2013 and the first AAA title to make use of it was Battlefield 4 by DICE which got support for the new API through a patch in February. It has since been a long road for AMD with many titles from EA and a few other developers giving support for the Mantle API in their games however the road has reach its end and AMD is finally ending Mantle and asking developers to focus on DirectX 12 instead which makes use of a similar design to AMD’s own formula of low-level overhead access.
