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