My System Specs


It's not like Nvidia hasn't been playing this game as well... they've been pushing their proprietary cuda and PhysX for quite some time and getting a lot of flak from the open source community for lack of support on all things non-proprietary.

I'm seeing two different narratives here though.... most references seem to suggest that DirectX would still be a base requirement with Mantle being a selectable option once that was in place, while a few others seem to suggest that it might be able to run either stand alone, or with some form of open source option..... (The Frostbite engine seems to suggest the latter)

Would mantle support a stand-alone option that could conceivably be run with a basic Linux install and/or something like a steam OS?
