Known issue of AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta
Mantle performance for the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000/HD 8000 Series GPUs and AMD Radeon™ R9 280X and R9 270X GPUs will be optimized for BattleField 4™ in future AMD Catalyst™ releases. These products will see limited gains in BattleField 4™ and AMD is currently investigating optimizations for them.
Multi-GPU support under DirectX® and Mantle will be added to StarSwarm in a future application patch
o Intermittent stuttering or stability issues may occur when utilizing Mantle with AMD CrossFire™ technology in BattleField 4™. A future AMD Catalyst release will resolve these issues
o Notebooks based on AMD Enduro or PowerXpress™ technologies are currently not supported by the Mantle code path in Battlefield 4™
AMD Eyefinity configurations utilizing portrait display orientations are currently not supported by the Mantle code path in Battlefield 4™
AMD Eyefinity technology is not currently supported in the StarSwarm application

Some Mantle Benchmarks Sneak Out Pre Driver Release: Low End CPU Benefits Tremendous

The Catalyst 14.1 driver continues to be further delayed, but AMD has snuck out the driver to a few sites it appears.  I have requested it, but so far no luck.  Is there anyone on the planet more qualified to test BF4 and Mantle?  Unlikely.  I actually play the game, and have almost 30 systems to test with.  So we wait.  

Legit Reviews has tested with a R7 260X and a i5-3570. Yes, backwards of the best scenario for what expect the boost from lower end CPUs to be, but they get almost a 16% increase in performance.   I have no interest in Star Swarm performance unless it becomes a game people play. 

However we do have some better news.  PCLab Poland has multiplayer benchmarks with a R9 290X and with Mantle and the A10-7850K Kaveri pushing it performance almost doubles on ultra at 1080P.  Its similar gains for every AMD CPU, and i3 and Pentiums with even lower clocked Haswell quads like the 4570 and 4670 benefiting.   Single player shows little benefit, but then there is much less going on, and who plays Battlefield for single player anyway?  Across the board performance numbers are impressive with from 100% to over 20% even for Intel's highest end 4770K. 

AMD Putting Final Touches On Catalyst 14.1

AMD has tweeted that they are putting the finishing touches on the Catalyst 14.1 drivers.

 

We are putting the finishing touches on the AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta driver, which enables support for Mantle. We appreciate your patience.

 

Battlefield 4 Updated, Mantle Support Coming Today In Catalyst 14.1 Beta

Hot Hardware and Hexus have more details on Mantle support and Battlefield 4.   It appears the R7/R9 chips, and Kaveri will have support, but all of us poor 7800/7900 users will have to wait.  I'm trying to confirm that now.
