AMD Showcases Battlefield 4 Running on Mantle at CES 2014

DICE’s FPS apparently runs 45 percent faster on Mantle.

Posted By | On 07th, Jan. 2014 Under News


AMD was present at CES 2014 to show off many things, but included a few new developments about their upcoming low-level PC API Mantle. The company showcases DICE’s Battlefield 4 running on the API and you can check out a short bit of it in the video above.

As of now, there’s no direct comparison between Battlefield 4 running on DirectX and Mantle, but AMD claimed that the game runs 45 percent faster on Mantle. The API will be available later this month for Battlefield 4 and it will certainly be interesting to see the performance boost considering that Battlefield 4 is already one of the best looking PC games of all time.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming API and do you notice any differences with Battlefield 4 in comparison to it running on DirectX? Let us know your comments below. Meanwhile, we’ll stay tuned in the coming weeks as Mantle is released and tested further.

      Doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that a streaming was recorded on the desktop and posted? :)… Original video is smoother http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LFt5vJFL1A

      Thx for showing this but my comment was based on the stutter during the 7 and 8 seconds of the video. I didn’t mean lag I meant stutter or freeze. Regardless, I have yet to see any comparison video between Mantle and DirectX, that is what everyone wants to see. I don’t understand why they don’t do that on any video?

      because it isn’t finished.

      Mantle is finished it’s BF4 that isn’t and never was. The decision to showcase Mantle this way is just plain wrong. Like I said in the last comment we need a comparison not a video of what we already have seen playing the game. I guess we need to just wait and see this 45% ourselves since they don’t want to prove it themselves. I’m just saying the video and comments made do not justify the amount of performance they claim to be getting so why even release a video like this?
