    AMD: Mantle, Battlefield 4 Patch hand Catalyst 14.1 Beta update

    Hello everyone,

    As you may have heard, the Battlefield 4 patch has been launched today. This new patch is automatically installed on systems that already have Battlefield 4 installed. In order to take advantage of the Mantle API and experience the performance increase, you will need to meet the following prerequisites:

    1. Install the latest Battlefield 4 patch from Origin (should be automatically installed)
    2. Install the latest graphics driver, the AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta (coming soon)
    3. Have a GCN (Graphics Core Next) based GPU in your system

    With the above in place, youíll be ready and Mantle will be enabled.

    The upcoming AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta driver will support all desktop GCN products, though we are working with EA to further optimize performance on 280X, 270X, HD-7000 and HD-8000 series GPUs.

    In addition, weíre giving the press time to exclusively test the beta driver while we implement the finishing touches on all the features you can expect from this driver.

    Please keep in mind 14.1 is a beta driver and your feedback is very important to us; once itís released, you may report any bugs or issues by using our official reporting form: www.amd.com/betareport

    Iím going to keep you informed and will make sure to provide you links to the upcoming Catalyst 14.1 Beta driver as soon as itís ready.

    Thank you in advance for your patience

    Mantle renderer now available in Battlefield 4 (BattleLog)

    AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta Driver Brings Mantle Support, Frame Pacing Phase 2, HSA (PC Perspective)

    I'm assuming when available the 14.1 Beta driver will be available here or here.

    Any chance this patch will be modded to help us less fortunate Nvidia grunts? Maybe the graphics results will be better when BF4 comes out of Beta.

    Are you talking about BF4 coming out of Beta, or a Mantle patch for the less fortunate?
