But to "just" a GTX 780? This is somewhat "slow"...

But one way or another, we are getting close to the release date. Cannot wait for well optimized drivers and BF4 using Mantle benchmark. Because if the engine is well designed for it (there is good to bare in mind, that this is the FIRST attempt to use Mantle and premiere of the Mantle itself), then there is no chance anything from nVidia come even remotely close to matching the performance.
Well, I really hope so! But as Mantle will come to BF4 only in December, and the way AMD is "acting up" right now, maybe we won't get a preview of mantle-optimized BF4...

Trust me, it would be awesome, and I strongly hope that we get a taste of MANTLE in the initial reviews!!!!
