  1. Hello Chris and Matt,
  2.  
  3. I've been following the show for quite a while, and I wanna thank you guys for the knowledge you guys bring with the show.
  4.  
  5. So by curiosity I got to know a new API called MANTLE, it will become an alternative and replacement for OpenGL and Direct3D, this API is being developed by AMD in contribution with all those games which are AMD optimized (AMD bundles).

  9. Mantle is included in the EA Frostbite 3 games, which they have been working together since 2004, Mantle based games include:
  10.  
  11. Battlefield 4
  12. Mirror Edge 2
  13. Star Wars: Battlefront
  14. more...

  17. Also more companies like Eidos, Square, Oxide games and others are also adopting the Mantle API.

  21. Mantle API will run on Nvidia hardware and consoles, so the main idea is to make an portable API, with greatly lower bootleneck on PCs (windows, mac, Linux)

  23. So there are GREAT titles to be expected for linux in between 2014 - 2015
