Windows 7: Mantle...Kinda Sucks....

Well, the drivers did not give me a gain for Battlefield 4, but they did however, increase my performance in my modded skyrim game and that is a bigger benefit to me who plays skyrim constantly.

That's the thing about BETA drivers and AMD states it explicitly on their site, they are provided as is.

I wouldn't say for just 2 games it's a driver for all around performance if they just focused on the mantle part then it wouldn't do anything for me

It's not just mantle it's a better driver package

I got rid of 14.1 it just didn't agree with my set up it took out one of my cards and the only way to get it back was to go back to the last WHQL driver

I find that strange :S I am starting to think it may be caused by a system conflict. Granted things shouldn't be so complicated. I feel confident to say that the issues I've had with my card have all been my own fault.

Trust me it's the drivers the last few sets are really terrible for Xfire users i pretty much gave up it works it works when it doesn't it BS trust me i have had there cards for a while and the drivers are the problem


All the 12.2 though 12.11 worked great soon as 13.1 downhill

Damn, that does suck.. I haven't seen problems for many people with a similar set up as yours. Just makes you wonder what and why it causes issues.

How much are you selling those babies for?

AMD have reported problems with using MANTLE in BF4, in some set-ups
it's also being looked at by DICE, to see if a further update to the game is required

- the official 14.1 BETA ReadMe states:

Known Issues
  • Mantle performance for the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000/HD 8000 Series GPUs and AMD Radeon™ R9 280X and R9 270X GPUs will be optimized for BattleField 4™ in future AMD Catalyst™ releases. These products will see limited gains in BattleField 4™ and AMD is currently investigating optimizations for them.
  • Multi-GPU support under DirectX® and Mantle will be added to StarSwarm in a future application patch
  • Intermittent stuttering or stability issues may occur when utilizing Mantle with AMD CrossFire™ technology in BattleField 4™ - AMD recommends using the DirectX code path when playing Battlefield 4 with multiple GPUs. A future AMD Catalyst release will resolve these issues
  • Notebooks based on AMD Enduro or PowerXpress™ technologies are currently not supported by the Mantle codepath in Battlefield 4™
  • AMD Eyefinity configurations utilizing portrait display orientations are currently not supported by the Mantle codepath in Battlefield 4™
  • AMD Eyefinity technology is not currently supported in the Star Swarm​ application
  • AMD testing for the AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta Mantle driver has been concentrated on the following products: AMD Radeon™ R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280, R9 270, R7 260X, R7 260, HD 7000 Series, HD 8000 Series, A10-7850K and A10-7700K. Future AMD Catalyst™ releases will include full test coverage for all AMD products supported by Mantle.
  • Graphics hardware in the AMD A10-7850K and A10-7700K may override the presence of a discrete GPU under the Mantle code path in Battlefield 4™
  • Frame Pacing for Dual Graphics and non-XDMA configurations above 2560x1600 do not currently work with Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. An upcoming release will enable support
  • DX9 Dual graphics is not supported in AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta. An upcoming release will enable support
StarSwarm is a benchmark available via Steam - you can run comparison tests
to see how well your card handles MANTLE and compare results against DirectX
- these are my results:

- where's this 14.2 BETA driver at..(??)
- I haven't seen it yet..
