AMD Mantle

With the help of Oxide Games, has released a presentation showing the benefits of the Mantle API.

Without getting too technical, what Mantle does is boost performance on a PC by directly utilising the GPU which effectively means that full power of a PC’s CPU can be utilised more effectively.

Oxide Games, which includes team members from Civ 5, C&C: Kane’s Wrath and more, whipped an impressive demonstration which you can find at around 25:50 in the video. You’ll see thousands of space ships on screen in this tech demo which they say is not for a specific game.

Watch the video all the way through for a complete explanation of Mantle. It’s quite lengthy but also interesting.
