AMD Mantle support for BF4 delayed

Written by Peter Scott



Honestly, who didn’t see this coming?

We have a confession to make. We use templates for some of our articles and one of the more popular ones looks something like this: “The new AMD (insert product name here) will be delayed for another (insert number of quarters/months here) due to technical issues with the (insert excuse here).”

Yes, AMD has a habit of delaying just about everything, although most delays and disappointments involve CPUs and APUs. Apparently the Radeon team doesn’t mess things up as much as the CPU guys. However, Mantle was not their finest hour.

AMD has now officially delayed the rollout of the Mantle patch for Battlefield 4.

“After much consideration, the decision was made to delay the Mantle patch for Battlefield 4. AMD continues to support DICE on the public introduction of Mantle, and we are tremendously excited about the coming release for Battlefield 4! We are now targeting a January release and will have more information to share in the New Year,” the company said in a statement.

The patch was supposed to show up in December and showcase the full potential of the Mantle API, i.e. prove that it really does boost performance. However, we have yet to see it in action and AMD is not even saying when it will appear.

Rumour has it that it should be ready sometime in January, which means AMD probably won’t be able to show it off at CES. (You are talking about January 2014, not 2015? Ed)
