While the Mantle API hasn't yet been proved to actually offer any substantial improvements, it is always nice to see devs take hold of new tech.

    Does ATI offer anything like nVidias PhysX? PhysX is awesome in my opinion and I really wish more games had it.

    Carson, you can do a hack which involves putting in an Nvidia card like a 9800GT in a second PCI-e slot along side your AMD card and using hacked drivers to use the 9800GT for PhysX and the AMD for rendering, but it's a pain in the butt to get working.

    Sadly, Nvidia are all about the "Let's make AMD second class citizens where physics are involved!", with some people thinking they're actually intentionally limiting CPU PhysX so their GPU's look better.

    Considering my GPU has like 8.2 TFLOPS of power, I'm pretty sure that if Nvidia allowed it, I'd be able to handle GPU physics :P
