    Nvidia coming with new mobile Maxwell GPU in early next year, AMD will introduce the mysterious Mantle. Which of these is a really game changer?

    Maxwell is definitely the next nVidia 3D video card hardware tech, but Mantle is not mysterious or hardware. Mantle is an API, software for driving 3D video, primarily for AMD's GCN silicon. So I guess it's hard to compare the two.

    Well we can hope for new AMD R9 mobile cards next year, with mantle support it should be clear choice vs maxwell.

    Indeed, it was terrible to install every day a new driver for BF4.

    Mantle is smoke and mirrors, until we get some benchmarks which prove it really makes a significant difference.
