so your logic is off bud.

if anything the game is just currently poorly optimized for some of the intel chips. that should change.
and AMD chips have 8 (physical!) cores, along with DICE heavily supporting AMD's Mantle technology. So no, the multi-optimization will not work for both AMD and Intel, as Mantle is supposed to be providing an AMD only advantage. so I think your logic is off there, bud. What remains to be seen is if this move by AMD provides net benefits.

OC what you have now and you'll realize some benefit in the short term. If not an FX-9370 is a more cost-effective path. I just got one a few weeks ago for $250.00 from NCIX.

Mantle is open source. Anyone can use it. I'm not saying it is, or ever will be optimized for Intel, but it can be utilized by anyone as long as they have the proper interface layer/API for it I would think.

They don't have 8 full cores which makes me wonder at what point multi-threaded apps will start hitting a bottleneck on shared resources for those cores.

I'm currently referring to bf4, not Mantle technology as a whole.

That's why I said physical cores :P - but intel chips have shared resources too.
