    So when is "the future"?
    When can we see release notes stating "Mantle optimized for 7xxx cards?

    I don't think you'll get an answer for that other than "future" BUT as I've said earlier even without the GPU specific optimizations you might still see a nice improvement by using the 14.3 driver and selecting Mantle in the BF4 video settings. Mantle works well with "slower" CPUs like the Phenom II. I saw a 25% increase from Mantle in BF4 (Ultra settings) at 1080p on a Phenom II X6 3.4 Ghz with 7970 GPU.

    P.S. I quoted "slower" in reference to the Phenom II because it's slower than the latest FX CPUs but I wanted to clarify that I still think it's still a plenty fast CPU. Buu can play BF4 at 1080p Ultra using DirectX on his Phenom II X6 at 3.4. Mantle gives a very nice performance bump for him.

    I'm now on a mission to get GhostDog to upgrade to 14.3 and try Mantle
