During a presentation by AMD’s Richard Huddy at PDXLAN, the Red team revealed that the public SDK for its lower level API, Mantle, will go live this year. As WCCFTECH reported, both Nvidia and Intel are free to write and release drivers that will enable Mantle on their hardware on all Mantle-enabled games once this public SDK goes live.

AMD Kaveri APU Showcased, Has Double The Performance Of Intel 4770K With A GeForce GT630

AMD

AMD’s Developer Summit is currently underway and yesterday the company showcased its new APU, the Kaveri. AMD’s Kaveri – the A10-7850K – was put against an Intel i7-4770K paired with an Nvidia GeForce GT630. Without a discrete GPU – and without taking advantage of the Mantle API – the A10-7850K has double the performance of the aforementioned combo in Battlefield 4. There is a video from that demonstration that can be viewed below. AMD’s Kaveri APU was running Battlefield 4 at 1080p and medium settings with 28-40fps while the i7-4770K + GeForce GT630 combo was running it with 12-15fps. AMD’s Kaveri APU will be released in the first quarter of 2014. Enjoy! Continue reading AMD Kaveri APU Showcased, Has Double The Performance Of Intel 4770K With A GeForce GT630

CES 2012: Intel caught cheating while demonstrating F1 2011 in DX11 on Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook

That’s hilarious. Intel attempted to demonstrate the DirectX 11 capabilities of their Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook and guess what; although the commentator was doing his best to simulate his driving skills and claimed that F1 2011 was running in DX11 mode, the main monitor betrayed him when he tried to press the play button on the video player program that was running at the background. This is just sad and shows that Intel’s Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook is not as good for gaming as you’d hoped to. Mooly Eden tried to make a comeback and said that the game was played by someone at backstage, when that wasn’t the case. This is a ‘double fail’ for Intel. Enjoy the following video from Intel’s show. Special thanks to YouTube member ‘networkworld’ for uploading it!
