AMD’s Mantle Developer Beta Program Begins This April, Will Go Public Afterwards

During GDC 2014, it has been revealed that AMD’s Mantle program for developers will begin this April. According to the following slide, Mantle’s Beta SDK website will be opening this April. The catch here is that access to it will be limited to a select few. In short, don’t expect small indie developers to get their hands on it. Still, the good news is that after that beta program, Mantle will be available to everyone.

AMD has also announced a partnership with Crytek to bring Mantle to CRYENGINE. We’ve known for quite a while that CRYENGINE will be supporting Mantle, as both Cloud Imperium and Rebellion will be taking advantage of it for Star Citizen and Sniper Elite III, respectively.


Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
