AMD Mantle – A DirectX 11 Alternative

HardwarePal : AMD has announced a new alternative to DirectX 11 called Mantle. For some time now AMD and Crytech have been complaining about how Microsoft’s API is limiting today’s GPU potential and by the look of it, it appears that AMD has had enough of it. (AMD, Gaming, Industry, Microsoft, PC hardware, Software)

Yeah i remember when Cevat Yerli from Crytek complained about Microsoft's DirectX. I guess we will have a revolution.

thats awesome news.
a new open source APIs for game developers and GPU manufacturers. this can only be a good thing coz people within the industry will be contributing to this on a daily/monthly basis.

It's a great idea, but proprietary and only works on AMD GPUs with the GCN architecture so implementation seems like it will be limited.

If Amd joins forces with Nvidia this will be console like gaming. No need changing hardware to play games.

I wouldn't count on it. Particularly Nvidia which only makes GPUs and if people stop buying newer GPUs because their old one can still max out modern games very easily then it'll be trouble for them.
