During Computex TAIPEI 2014, AMD showed off the performance difference between Microsoft’s DirectX and Mantle, and today the red team released a video from it. AMD used an AMD FX-8350 8-core CPU with an AMD Radeon R9 290X and the performance difference in Starswarm was around 50fps. While Starswarm ran in particular scenes with 2-4fps via DX11, the same benchmark on the same hardware ran with 55fps under Mantle. Enjoy the video after the jump!
