Well, now there is a slightly different story. Something finally began to happen. If they don't step up, AMD probably will try to outrun them.I would guess that it would take at least a couple of years to roll this out assuming that nothing has been in the works until now.
Amd already stated that they did not care if mantle became a industry standard, all they were trying to do was shake up the industry. I guessed it worked. As for opengl amd was already going to make a extension that would help opengl have mantle like qualities. Also if it matters amd was going to publish public sdk for mantleA guy from AMD is helping OpenGL become low-level? This confuses me.
If AMD doesn't support it, they won't have a say in it. Which means nVidia and Intel would get to learn what's new first hand AND make a few decisions that (guess what) could favor their hardware more than AMD's.A guy from AMD is helping OpenGL become low-level? This confuses me.
