While Mantle support has been added in today's Battlefield 4 update, it still isn't able to be used until AMD rolls out a new video driver. Until then, DICE details all you need to know about how to enable it within the game and what to expect once it's enabled.

You will need the 14.1 Beta drivers from AMD once they are released. You will need an AMD Radeon GPU with "Graphics Core Next". You will also need a 64-bit version of Windows, be it 7, 8, or 8.1. Once these are all met, you can then select "Mantle" from the in-game video settings under "Graphics API."


What kind of gains might you expect from Mantle? Here are some of the results from a test DICE conducted on their own.
