AMD's Mantle API Adopted by Crytek

AMD and Crytek have entered into a technology partnership that will add native Mantle graphics API support to CryEngine, the latest iteration of the game engine that has powered Crytek gaming titles since 2004.

Launched in September 2013, Mantle works by streamlining communication between a gamer's CPU and GPU. By alleviating communication bottlenecks and making efficient use of existing PC hardware, Mantle helps improve overall game performance. The combination of Mantle and CryEngine empowers game developers to accelerate PC development and extract unprecedented gaming performance, exclusively from AMD products with GCN architecture.

The inclusion of AMD’s Mantle API will now allow CryEngine licensees to ready their development studios for a future increasingly focused on the "closer-to-the-metal" vision that AMD has pioneered.
