Battlefield 4 Mantle update is live

Battlefield 4 Mantle update is live

AMD graphics card owners are now able to play the Mantle version of Battlefield 4.

To run the Mantle version users must have updated their AMD GPU driver to the 14.1 beta and be running a Radeon card with Graphics Core Next (R9 290X, R9 290, R7 260X and Kaveri APU) and have a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or 8.

And of course the most up to date version of Battlefield 4.

Once all of these conditions have been met Mantle can then be selected from the graphics options menu.

Battlefield 4 on PC is already quite heavily optimized using DirectX 11 and DirectX 11.1, but with Mantle we are able to go even further,” Frostbite technical director Johan Andersson said. “We’ve significantly reduced CPU cost in our rendering, efficiently parallelized it over multiple CPU cores and reduced overhead in many areas.

“The biggest performance gains can be seen when the game is bottlenecked by the CPU which can be quite common even on high-end machines and this was main goal to improve on with Mantle. We’ve also been able to streamline and optimize some of the GPU workload. The end result is that game performance is improved in virtually all scenarios in Battlefield 4 on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 when running with Mantle.

“This update is the first release of our new Mantle renderer, and we will continue to provide more tuning for different types of configurations in future updates.  Still, we are really happy with the performance improvements that we are seeing with this update and we believe you will be as well.”

Further Details can be found at the Battlefield website.
