  • I can't believe the way all these "investors" can't see past the next quarterly report, no wait.... I can actually. Mantle isn't really an attempt to dominate the PC platform. It will be perfected there, but it's real purpose isn't that sector.

    AMD now controls console gaming, period. Mantle could be adapted for it but it won't really be anytime soon. Certain features and functionality may be but it really isn't necessary when you control the hardware platform and the custom OS that runs on it. What Mantle is really targeting is mobile gaming.

    Mantle allows games to greatly reduce their dependence on general purpose computational cores, and puts the work where it belongs: On the GPU. Mantle is a setup for X86, and more importantly, ARM-Radeon APU mobile gaming. What else would it really be for? Why would AMD put in all that work just to compete with Direct X or OpenGL? What for? Especially when they own the console market now.

    When the Radeon ARMHD APUs come out for tablets it will be a slaughter. Nobody else will have that type of advanced gaming platform available.

    Bravo Mr. Reed, Bravo.
