Battlefield 4 runs up to 45% faster with AMD’s Mantle software
A Last week, DICE announced that they delayed the AMD Mantle update to Battlefield 4. Mantle is AMD’s new graphics API that gives developers more a more direct access to the GPU compared to the standard DirectX found on Windows PCs.
AMD previously said that Mantle might give games around 10% improvement in performance when running on the same hardware, but that performance appears to be far greater now.
The company just announced some Mantle games at CES, where they showcased Battlefield 4 running on the new technology. And according to AMD’s presenter in the video above, Battlefield 4 runs up to 45 percent faster in some instances.
That’s an incredible performance with just a software update, and means that many owners of older AMD graphics cards will be able to get much more out of their hardware.
The Battlefield 4 mantle update will be available later this month.
