Nvidia Slam AMDs Mantle And Claim There Is No Benefit To Using It Over DX12

Written by Jon Sutton on 28 July 2014 at 16:10

Nvidia has finally spoken out about AMD’s Mantle API, claiming it doesn’t see any benefit to AMD’s close-to-the-metal API and has no plans whatsoever to support it in the future.
