AMD 13.35 Mantle driver leaked

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Ahead of schedule

It turns out that the Battlefield 4 Mantle patch has been pushed again, and AMD has little to do with it. This is an EA internal issue, as EA controls the release of the patch but AMD got us on our toes since it said that Mantle patch should speed up Battlefield 4 on AMD hardware by up to 45 percent.

We heard even a number higher than that, but 45 percent is what AMD's legal department was comfortable with, and that's the figure graphics CTO Raja Koduri was allowed to disclose. Now Toshiba has jumped the gun leaking the AMD Catalyst 13.35 beta driver that comes with Mantle API support as well as TrueAudio support and it is a 316 MB download. The bad thing for most of you who cannot wait to give it a try that this download likely works only on Toshiba notebooks and nothing else but make sure to give it a try and let us know if it works for your AMD enabled system in desktop or notebook form.

The real driver is nearing release, we just need to see the Battlefield 4 Mantle patch and then we will give it a try and of course let you know If the systems such as Kaveri A8 7600 can get much more than 28 FPS at 1920x1080 medium settings, a score that we have been seeing for the last few days on Kaveri.
