AMD’s Mantle technology is currently used to strengthen the performance of PC GPUs. Several PC games have taken advantage of this, including Thief and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. People have wondered if this technology could be used with the PS4 and Xbox One as well, and according to AMD’s Senior Director of Global Software Alliances Neal Robison, the answer is yes. Mantle could heighten their performance even beyond what we’ve already seen.
Of course, this is a decision that Sony and Microsoft would have to make, but AMD is willing to enter such a partnership. DualShockers contacted AMD for confirmation, and the answer was clear. If Sony and Microsoft decide they want to use Mantle, “AMD stands ready to share the technology.”
Would you want the PS4 and Xbox One to support this technology? Do you think the companies will choose to go that path?
